Those first two that say they were shot with the "Sony 50mm f/1.8" are horrific. Did you put a single-element converter in front of the lens? There seems to be a lot of field curvature going on in addition to the swirl (very serious vignetting) -- not things I'd want to be seeing in a modern "fast 50" lens!

I agree, very horrific in terms of optical correction.  Think it could be OIS doing something it shouldn't?  Otherwise it looks like something seriously wrong optically.  No way a 50mm has that much field curvature, I have used the 50mm and never saw anything like that
