You are not alone.

I have had 3 copies of the minolta 50mm f1.7 over the years.  None of them really impressed me unless you factor in their cost / build quality. Its fun to play with, but i am probably going back to the 35mm F2 for ease of operation.

I much prefer IQ from my minolta 70-210mm F4. shoot around 90mm at 5.6, its really nice for portraits.
