Q: Is the Lens Blur good?
A: Yes

Q: Are you happy with it?
A: No

Are you?

What are you unhappy with? I have used it sparingly but real care has to be taken. Otherwise distinct lines show. I haven't ever used it at 100%.

I went to Slimbridge, UK yesterday to shake down my EF 400mm f2.8 LIS II and EF 100-400mm F5.6 L IS II.
I shot a lot of ducks...although, not the usual type! Plus some swans, Plovers, Avocets and a few sandlings.

It's amazing how poor the light was. I'm thrilled with my new lenses. I think I'll need to purchase a 2nd 1.4x TC mkII, so I have one available for each lens!

I think the Avocets (posh ducks) were my favorite of the day.
In the dim, flat light, they seem to process in BnW best.

If Lightroom didn't have this feature and/or you didn't say anything no one would know. It's whatever YOU like.

Great capture!

It’s not about new feature itself.

Maybe nobody knows the photo is “Lens Blur”-ed if I didn’t say anything. Problem is I knew it. It doesn’t bring me much happiness :-)

I understand that and agree! :)
