Agreed, it's stunning what you can do with this camera. I took this JPEG the first day of having the A7 with the kit lens:

It was a snapshot, with no intention of doing anything other than putting the kit lens through its paces. Here's what 5 minutes' work did to the sky:

I probably could have fixed the white balance a tiny bit but I was very impressed how much otherwise unremarkable sky can really be salvaged from a mere JPEG - certainly never got these kind of results from a 5N!

Of course that's not to say multi-shot exposures aren't superior - they are.  It's just that now there's a whole lot less occasions when you need them.
