Best of both worlds - really?

I shoot RAW + JPEG to have the best of both worlds. If the output is fine, I don't have to do any processing at all. If I need to adjust things, I use lightroom 90-95% of the time.

But it's not the best of both worlds. If you shoot RAW+JPEG you no longer have the option to use DRO, HDR or MFNR in the camera. The options are disabled and you have to optimize the dynamic range by hand in post processing, from the RAW files.

The ideal solution would be if Sony allowed these options to work in the RAW+JPEG mode, except that the effects were not applied to RAW. Difficult to understand why this isn't possible.
