I think the Sigma EX DG APO would be the best overall (albeit I've not used it) as it's as fast as the Minolta, but cheaper.

Thanks Mark, the older Sigma with no stabilisation seems very cheap, the new model adds stabilisation (not needed with in body stabilisation on the A-99) and the better glass as you mentioned but is about $700 more here in Aus.

The new Tamron does look nice though, fixing the slow AF problem but adding stabilisation which again is not needed in the A-99
