I made a testanimation in my freetime to try out the new denoising feature in Blender 2.79.
As expected, DOF gives Denoising a hard time. Also pixels with a brightness value far over 1 often spark "black spots".
The animation was rendered with 1024 samples. To get it noise free it would have taken around 10000 samples without the new feature.
What do you think?
