Old minolta lenses VS modern

Hi,

Sorry if this question has been asked 10^N times, but I need some quick hint from more experienced Minolta people.

I admit I was considering the Zeiss 50mm (yes, I agree it's overpriced), but I found a local shop that sells A LOT of used Minolta lenses (yes, I noticed they are very cheap).

The shopowner, not knowing I was thinking about the Zeiss, was strongly suggesting me a metal-mount AF Minolta 50mm (which would cost ~1/20 of the Zeiss), so I was actually tempted.

Is there any Minolta lens in particular that is worth having and it's competitive with the modern ones?
