Well, one thing worth keeping in mind with the A99ii is that in S or A setting the maximum EV change that you will see in both viewfinder and histogram before taking the shot is +-3EV, anything higher won't show until you take the shot.
Older SLT cameras are generally limited to +-2EV before the change stops showing, think it's only A99ii and A77ii that can do +-3.

Caught me out a few times on the old A77 in very backlit conditions, roll on the exposure compensation to try and brighten a subject up, forget about the limit and the end result comes out way over exposed.
