That's the way the D5100 operates. It's surprising to me now that the D700 allows it. It's something I never considered prior to this thread.

That was my response as well. I've taken multiple exposures before using my D3X and I know what it does to certain light areas. It isn't even close to a HDR image.

edit: I can't seem to duplicate my earlier sequence. Now I can't implement bracketing with ME ON. ME still works but now it deletes the original files so only the ME file remains, either a jpg or a nef depending on what the original files were. Now I don't know what kind of setup I had before.

edit: Now I get the same thing on the D700.
This has been an interesting thread. I normally like to try to duplicate a problem or try something I've never tried before when it comes up in a new thread. However in this case I don't have a D7000. Since I wanted the articulating screen and it had the same sensor as the D7000 I bought the D5100 instead. However I have used ME and HDR with my other cameras.
