You did not test the Minolta Rokkor MC 50-1.4 PG, a well-regarded lens. Far better than the newer plasticky MD version which you did test. Hope you will soon, nice job overall.

Just too many of them... But aren't they supposed to be same optically with MD having slightly improved multi-coating? I had several MD samples and did keep the sharpest one. (The one I included in the test).
