Here is a bit of a comparison I did of the Minolta AF 50mm F3.5 to the Sony FE 50mm F2.8 both at f/4 at 1:2 magnification with a one dollar bill:

Well, that's a night and day comparison!

I don't happen to have the AF 50mm f/3.5 macro, but my Rokkor 50mm f/3.5 is way better than what you're showing. Is there something wrong with that lens?

Maybe. I didn't see any obvious signs. This was my second or third copy. The MD 50mm F3.5 I had was worse. Minolta 50's do tend to vary quite a bit.
