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.

Were you using an LA-EA2/4 to AF? It might be you have an issue with needing to tweak the focus micro adjustment. I personally haven't run into much of that issue, but some folks have significant front/back focus using the SLT PDAF without tweaking the AF micro adjust. Note that the tweak needed can also be lens dependent, so you'd want to adjust using that lens.
