I'm guessing you had the lens wide open the lower light shots. most lenses with this high an F stop tend to be a little soft wide open and this one is no exception. So unless you spend big bucks it's not so much a characteristic of that lens but that particular type of lens.

Of the minolta 50mm lenses probably the f2 is the best for sharpness wide open.

Of all the 50mms I have tried they indeed softy wide open. My Canon FD50mm 1.4 has been the sharpest, less glowy so far. The rokkor at 2.0 becomes much sharper for sure. I had a Hexanon 50mm 1.4 that was basically an "artistic rendition" when at 1.4
