Minolta 50's vary quite a bit as far as sharpness. The best copies are pretty sharp wide-open.

The Tamron SP 35mm and 45mm primes are fairly affordable options if you want something sharp at F1.8.

@QuietOC, I am looking for a 35mm myself. The 50mm I ended up with has some serious issues (decentered + very soft). I am looking for one to use with an X570 film camera. Could you recommend a few 35mm alternatives to the relatively expensive MD 35mm f/2.8 for use with the X570?

I am selling a sharp Vivitar 35mm F2.8 that would work.
