people have been begging for wider bracketing ranges on the nex cameras since they first came out, and sony hasn't bothered with it. I'd suggest you don't hold your breath for that one.

+1 - it won't happen. As far as I can see the only recent Sony APS-C camera with a decent auto-bracketing range is the A77. Mind you, Sony's not alone, look at the Nikon D3200 - no auto-bracketing at all. The difference is that the N7 is supposed to be a camera for enthusiasts, at least judging by the price. The Nikon is unashamedly a beginner's camera but, as I've said elsewhere, Sony engineers don't appear to be photographers. A shame but, as someone else says, maybe we enthusiasts are a tiny majority. Ah well, if I want to do HDR I can always get the new Panasonic G5 and the 25mm Summilux for the same price as the Zeiss 24mm.

Please Sony, listen to your loyal customers - we don't want to have to move.
