Hello, I have a little problem here.

It seems that the "Sampling Focus" is especially strong on and around light sources (e.g. front lights of the bike), while other noisy spots never become clean (area above the front lights, helmet reflections). I know there was an oversampling of dark areas in the past, but now it seems to behave the other way round in some scenarios.

Does it make sense to turn off the adaptivity in such a case?

I don't know why, but I have the feeling that the good old "bucket mode" used to do better on "DOF highlights" and other special cases than the "new" adaptivity mode.
It was said that it will never come back... so, are further improvements of the adaptivity algorithms planned for future releases? :)
