... On same 3 shots, 1 1/3 stops apart, handheld - starting with same photo selected.

In some areas it was marginally better, and in others it is night-and-day better! Wow! The older HDR was even blurry in these night-and-day areas.



... Just my 2 cents

Have you heard anything about whether it should still be better with fewer shots? (within a certain stop range - I forget the specific numbers though)

I still have yet to fully test that out myself (right now I'm too stoked to try redoing more previously made ones :), simply copying all the develop settings) -- but I think most of the ones done in the prior versions so far were 3 shots included. Unfortunately, I only somewhat recently started to regularly record whether or not 3 shots were used and how much deghosting may have been used - recorded in the 1st snapshot name. For the one above, 3 shots were listed as being used - no deghosting info on it though.

It would be wonderful if Adobe started recording that info in the metadata soon.
And on a related note, they still haven't allowed for auto stacking yet. :-/

Yep, that still stands unless they're too far apart and introducing noise.

I've found the Panorama merge to work better also. I have tested with a few sets that wouldn't merge in the correct order in Lightroom, but would in Photoshop. They now merge fine in LR and quickly too.
