It was wide open. I probably could have gone with a smaller aperture, but hand holding at night, just goofing around, I wasn't too particular.

Wide open at 1.7? You must be standing far away! I have a 50mm 1.7 that I thought was very good but I don't think I have taken image that sharp at wide open.

Oops! Double checked. Was at 2.2!

It's still very little background blur for FF f/2.2 and the apparent distance to the background. Are you sure you didn't shoot in APS-C Mode?

Definitely not. Perhaps the smaller image sizes are creating that effect?

In the first picture, the rail is a car length or less away. In the full size image, the sharpness decreases behind the wheel well.

Which Minolta 50mm 1.7 are you using? It is not the Rokkor is it? My Rokkor does not have a F-stop at 2.2.
