645D in camera HDR...useful or just a gimmick?

Just curious if anyone has used and whether or not they found useful the in camera HDR function on the 645D? Does this offer any sort of professional advantage, or is it just a gimmick used to help sell cameras?

I just don't see this being advantageous when you can have full control of the HDR processing in post afterwards.

HDR's you come up with yourself will look better, obviously, but given that you're on a tripod (which you always will be with the 645D), then the in-camera HDR option will save you a lot of time if you don't want to spend hours processing your photos. It really does work quite well- see our K-5 review for some examples (the feature is exactly the same).
