Manual fast primes are just great. They are sharp, even wide open, across the frame, they have great bokeh, contrast, colors, etc. You can have all that. But like verybiglebowski have sad, not in one lens. These lenses are perfectly imperfect. They are not design by computer, so they are different and every lens has it`s own character. "The best" is matter of personal preferences and type of photography you are after. This is a list of lenses that often pop up in posts when someone mentioned "The best":

By no particular order:

Konica Hexanon AR 1.7/50
C/Y Carl Zeiss Planar 1.7/50
Canon FD 1.4/50 (SSC or nFD)
Minolta 1.4/50 (MC or MD)
Pentax 1.4/50 (various versions)
