Another big lens battle of fast 50mm F1.4:

    Minolta MC Rokkor PG
    Minolta MD I Rokkor
    Minolta MD II Rokkor
    Minolta MD III

- most difficult was to select winner

That's also my experience. The newer 7/6 versions are the slightly better ones.

I have a question. I have a late(r) MD 50/1.4. It has no Roman numerals on its face. How do I tell which version it is? Serial number? Close focusing distance?

The face just states:

Minolta (then 180 degrees apart:) MD 50mm 1:1.4 Japan Φ49mm

It has the MD switch also.

That's easy. Every Minolta lens without "Rokkor" on the front ring is a "plain MD" AKA MD version III.
