Recommendations for a Standard Zoom Lens

I have a Sony a77 and just ordered an a99. I have a Rokinon 14mm 2.8, a Sigma 50mm 1.4, a Sony 70-200mm 2.8 and a Sony 70-400mm 4.5-5.6. My a77 came with a pretty good Sony 16-50mm 2.8 DT zoom lens, but it is to my understanding that it will only work in crop mode on the a99. Therefore, I am in the market for a good zoom lens that will cover that missing full frame range. I have about a $700 budget, so finding one within this range is preferable, however I do want to try to get the best lens for my money possible. I do a lot of video work too, so it will also be used for filming. Any suggestions on a standard zoom that is sharp and well built for the a99 in that range?
