I think that a CZ 24-70 is not a wise choice for the a55 or for any crop camera, at least for me, you would lose the wide end to gain a marginal extra on the other end. Add to that the fact that it weighs more than double the weight of your camera which would cause balance issues.

The A77+ 16-50 is a much better overall option, just make sure that you try it in a shop which stocks it as it is around 50% heavier than your current set-up. Also check with your 18-250 lens whether you would like to only use 18-50 portion for your photographs.
