For superb sharpness wide open I went with the Canon FD 55mm f1.2 SSC Aspherical for my 5DSR. Bokeh is probably not as smooth as the non- aspherical versions.

Here's an example of the kind of bokeh that you might not like with the FD 55mm f1.2 SSC. This was shot at f1.2.

Or maybe you like it. The uneven bokeh does have kind of a classic 60s-70s look to me. You can see in in lots of movies from that period.
