Of course the A7 doesn't kill HDR photography, which some people love and others don't.

What I mean is that does it remove the need to take more then one Photo ?

IMHO I think, in many cases, the answer is now yes.

The dynamic range is simply awesome. It seems to recover details from inky black, or white outs, that I simply didn't imagine was still there!

I enhance the dynamic range more subtely (or at least I think its subtle) but extreme work is quite easy.

Some amateur examples here

Here is an example where the bridge was a black out. It was easy to bring it back and simultainesouly slightly darken and enhance the sky definition:

The Pipe, Limehouse Cut

The bridge, both top and floor, have been brought back:

The other side of the bridge

I have reinstated the people here:

South Molton Street

The clouds have been reinstated from a white out:

St Pauls

The old church below has been reinstated:

Old and new

Here the old boat was blacked out:

Abandoned docks

Here the garden was shaded completely:

Symmetry

Lastly the ceiling of the bridge and bridge was a total black out:
