I found these sample photos quite interesting:

and another interesting comparison:

I also got my new A99 few days ago and yesterday I ordered "Secret Handshake lens" aka Minolta AF 28-135 4-4.5 from Ebay. There's no doubt that Zeiss 24-70 is a excellent lens, but I'm not ready to put two, three or more times amount of money when there's much more inexpensive options with very close or even better sharpness and IQ.

I will also get myself the Sony 28-75, because this lens is probably the least expensive choice today, when looking for a support of the AF-D focusing with A99? And not a bad performer neither, at least when looking at those samples linked above.
