Re: Yes, occasionally. More often grateful for greater DOF.

Second that!

In general, background blur is often misused to hide wrong focal length or standing in the wrong spot. If the background is distracting, move, or get a different angle on the subject. Only on rare occasions a blurred background actually adds something to the picture that would not work when sharp. I see way to much 'lazy' blur in pictures.

When used properly, blur can be great, but in those cases, a Gaussian blur layer will save the day any time.
