It's not at all what I would call a «properly exposed high ISO image»
 If I have to publish this photo for press magazine, it must be exposed like this:

The image was taken in low light.

Wow! What does that mean?

Here the question is: do this photo is a «properly exposed high ISO image»...

Answer is: not, period!

It's the role of the photographer to solve every situations of light to make a photo (whatever the available light is, whatever available ISO it have nor what camera is used). 
So, it would be better too shoot 6400 ISO (than 3200 ISO) and having a «properly exposed image» (or better, using a tripod what is not the shame)

I have already noted that, in a post above! And you know why?! Because Sony setup his camera for a «preservative exposure», to don't blowing highlights! But it's a shame that a tester can receive a camera for testing and don't know that!

Can the A99 show real time histogram in EVF?

Of course yes! It have real time histogram in EVF I guess (the A900 had «Intelligent Preview» too) But what does that mean if some camera don't have? You can do a test-shoot (pre-shoot) then you can know what the histogram look like for real, and so on...

All that is not about good light available light (or not), features available in-camera (or not), but about the workflow imho.

Kind Regards,
