I think it’s awesome!!
I think it’s got its place, mostly for me on the telephoto stuff. Every time I use the 200-600 I’m super impressed by the images. But it is relatively slow, it’s a beast to hold so shutter speeds need to be decent, and really fast for BIF. It’s brilliant for say iso6400 shots, especially when cropping in and you don’t want to lose any detail.
The fact that it creates a separate file doesn’t bother me as I won’t use it that often.
I probably won’t use it on people shots as the normal NR is fine for that as I’m rarely cropping much.
But I also agree with Travis. They do look different with a hint of AI. I think 30% denoise seems to be a good balance.
The new photoshop tools and general AI world is fairly terrifying though. Pretty confident I would give give up the denoise feature in LR to not have the emerging level of AI in the world.
