Default Form?

I've heard lots of speculation going both ways and I was wondering which is the "best" or ultimately the "correct" form to have on exercises such as flat bench incline bench etc...


When brining the weight down is it correct to come all the way until the bar touches the chest or is it correct to just go until your arm bends to a 90 degree angle and then press the weight????

^^ meaning touch your chest, going to 90 degrees and pressing is called a floor press.
