A99 shadow recovery
4

With Sony CMOS sensors I just find that there is so much detail in the shadows so in difficult lighting conditions my workflow is almost the opposite - shoot to not clip the highlights and bring the rest up later, this allows for a faster shutter speed too.
Here's an example of this in operation with the A99 (not my greatest ever photo but I thought it might be helpful to show it to people):

My raw conversion:

Like I said, not the best picture I've ever taken - but a great example of the DR (especially in the shadows) of the A99 sensor - it was about a minute of work to get to this point.
