I would love to believe that this person did something really wrong - though, to be honest, most of his images look this mushy - check these out, for example:

I'm in no way insinuating that these are normal - I'd just like to understand why they could look so utterly awful, ...

Well, it's a rather subjective question, so I'll offer a subjective answer. It's probably a combination of technique and Trey's insane amounts of post processing ©.

Trey is famous all around the internet, and has mass popularity with his HDR work, which is "not my cup of tea", and evidently, is not yours either.

I think that the A7R would compliment your style of shooting very nicely. I also plan on getting one - but choose your sources with caution - e.g. FredMiranda.
