Hi, and welcome :)

A99 is a fine piece of kit; what are you looking to shoot, and what sort of budget do you have, once we have an idea of those there will be plenty of folks happy to spend your cash :lol:

I have an A99.  My walkabout "brick"is the SAL2470Z.  Lovely piece of glass and sharp as the proverbial but the weight of it starts to tell after walking around for the day.  My longer lens is the SAL70-300G.  I would liek a lonmger reach but the 70-400G is too heavy.

And Welcome to the forum.  I have been away for a few days so catching up....john
