Current a99 owners, what was your previous dSLR?

Friendly discussion in another thread, if Sony makes the a-mount solely for advanced users willing to spend $$$... Will users jump from other brands, or will Sony be choking off its future by not having a stream of entry level users growing into advanced users.

So decided to ask owners of Sony's current flagship a-mount, did you jump straight into the product? Or did you grow into it?

My history -- Minolta Maxxum--- wanted to keep my lenses though it was just a simple 35-70 kit plus a 70-210 telephoto at the time.  So I was steered to the a100 as my first dSLR.  Then the a55.... And finally the a99.

So for current a99 owners,  what did you own before you purchased your a99?
