Two comments:

a) The corners are the problem area. Critically evaluate any current wide angle and you'll see the drop off.  Center usually isn't the problem. The more modern designs are (generally) better in the corners, and it's easy to see if you've tested properly.

b) Your 50/2 AI is a sweet lens - one of my favorite 50's from an era long ago. However, I don't think it would beat a 50/1.8G from today if you got really critical about it, in the corners. Don't know, because I haven't had my 50/2 in ages. Probably should have kept that one....
