Martin,
while everyone will have their favourites, I have had good results with a couple. My first was the Leica R series 180/4, stunningly sharp, and well made. Well priced too.
Where it failed was the back-focus side, as the CCD and CFW added up to more than the distance from the rear flange to chip. Yes I could have possibly worked something, but the easier option was to go to Plan B.
Plan B was a couple of Pentax 67 lenses, currently a 200/4, and a 55/4. Both have as you would expect gobs of back-focus, and are sharp as I feel I need. Bonus here is they are well priced too.
