The Sony 85mm f2.8 is probably the best choice if you want something that's at least 80mm. I like to use the Minolta 50mm f1.4 (about $250). It cost a bit more than the Minolta 50mm f1.7 (less than $100), but the bokeh is smoother. It's not real sharp wide open, but is excellent at f2. Starting here is a large set (about 100) of candid portraits taken with the Minolta 50mm f1.4 using the A-77:

Enjoyed the shots with the minolta lens
