I did my own quick and dirty with the Rokkor 1.4 @ f2, handheld on my kitchen counter. I would agree the sample above is not representative and suffers from either missed focus, a haze on the elements, poor lighting or some combination of these factors.

Minolta Rokkor X 50mm 1.4 @f2

looks good, but I would strongly suggest to always use a tripod and self timer or remote for this kind of sample pic

I agree, but if I used those things I could only improve on this image, right? And my goal was just to show a properly focused 100% crop of a $20 bill taken with a Rokkor 1.4 @f2 didn't have to look like the hazy mess that was presented earlier. I think I demonstrated that.

you certainly did

and I must correct myself, my sample is not a 50% crop but a 100% crop taken at minimum focus distance
