Does anybody have a comment as to how this compares to the newer Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro?

All three Minolta 50/2.8s and the Sony 50/2.8 have the same optical design... but the diaphragm shape is different in later versions, and so are the focusing methods and support for focus hold and ADI, and so are the coatings. The newest coatings help minimize the inherent sensor reflections, but probably won't completely eliminate them.
