I agree 100% the explosions in the above videos look MUCH better! Tank cook offs should look as brutal as they really are. Please optimize the smoke particles as well, they cause major performance issues.

The uncharted series for the PS3 had this feature and I used it ALL THE TIME. Would love the feature but stability>features in the current state of the game.
When I join a multiplayer server my fps starts off great, until a smoke is thrown. I can be aiming in one direction, notice my fps dropping from around 30 to maybe... 5-10? look in the other direction, low and behold, a smoke grenade...

Game runs well on low settings otherwise.
EDIT: All dust like particles cause major lag for my system. From car exhaust, explosion after effects, car dust trails, and most majorly smoke grenades. Please allow us to lower these particles more in the video options. I would prefer a large opaque blob over gameplay destroying fps lag.
I disagree, throwing a nade fast is more important than people people forgetting what their grenade key is.
The current system works great. These are trained soldiers, its going to be thrown fast. If it ends up getting slowed down, for the love of all that is good, do NOT tie it to an animation that makes the character immobile.
