which 50mm lens do you recommend for the a99

Hello everyone,

I just got my a99 and I am shooting it with a Minolta 50mm 1.4 lens. While it is a nice, light, sharp lens, from 2.8 on I could not help but noticing that the AF is pretty noisy and slow and the minimum focus distance is about 50cm. Can you recommend any other one, which 50mm is best for the sony except the pricey new CZ?

Thanks.
