Sony A7 - HDR issue

    I have recently bought a Sony A7 mk1, and found an issue with the HDR mode. When I use HDR mode (either auto or manual setting), the highlights get brighter along with the shadows (any area of over exposure appears worse in the HDR image). I also have a NEX5, which does not suffer such an issue, and has taken some great looking sunset shots in HDR mode. The camera was bought new from a UK retailer, and runs the latest 3.1 firmware.
    Has anyone else noticed this issue? or has any idea of what is (or I am doing) wrong.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I thought the strength of the A7 series was dynamic range. If you wan to extend it further better to make specific exposure choices and blend in post processing and not let the camera auto mode do it.
