For the most part, I find the focus rings weak on most of the AF lenses, but as it goes, the focus ring on the normal Minolta lens has never given me a problem and in those instances I need to use it, it fits the bill quite well and is easy to use...the only problem I have ever had with any of the 50mm f/1.7 lenses is the darn built in sliding hood, I normally take my pocket knife and remove them and use a rubber screw on hood, but that goes for the f/1.4 as well, got rid of it right away
