I know little of this lens. There seem to be many versions: http://minolta.rokkor.de/normallenses.htm#50mm%201.7
Most collectible model? Best in optical terms?

Minolta made tons of every iterations, so they are not exactly collectible. I've used all of them and thought them to be loveable little lenses. Early models look prettier but often have oily blades, later MD lenses feel a bit plasticky but have better coatings. All in all, I feel copy to copy variation is more important than a particular flavor you go with.

My Rokkor PF 50 1.7 is a very good lens, but I use the Rokkor 50 1.4 more, for the only reason that it's a bit faster. They are both excellent lenses.
