According to this:

The MC Rokkor-PG is the cream of the crop. The MD one appears needing much harder stopping down and even then it runs behind.

I'm not sure the tests are done right. The result for MD rokkor appeared less sharp at 4.0 than 2.8. It is certainly not my experience.

Also, it says for the 1.4 test:

"There are three fast prime lenses: Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-S 50 mm f/1.4, Minolta MC Rokkor-PG 50mm f/1.4, Minolta MD Rokkor 50 mm f/1.4. In terms of sharpness they showed almost identical results. However, if you look closely, the picture of the Minolta MD Rokkor 50 mm f/1.4 looks somewhat better: a little more contrast, perhaps due to more modern antireflection coating."
