Any idea what's causing this or is this normal? I am highly visually alert so I noticed the slightest things so maybe it's just me?
Nothing wrong with the tv and is normal, but about your highly expectation with the HD tech.
What is your reference source? Did you ever saw a source that isn't blurring when panning?, i.e. movie theater, crt/plasma/lcd/led/projector tv sources?, blur is (intended) in the movie itself?
Even in real life when you panning your head (fast) around, everything looks blur to my eyes! just saying.
But here is the solution to display movies correctly on your tv, without or to minimize judder/jitter/shudder/stutter/blurring/soap opera etc.:
-When playing movies (as movies are recorded @24p = 24fps) from your bluray player/htpc/ps3 etc. ALWAYS set those video output= 24p!
-Set your tv [24p Direct in] = 48Hz or 24Hz if available!
For the following settings that cause more or less blurring/posterization etc., try it out:
-Set "Video NR" = Off
-Set [Color space] = Normal.
-Set [Contour emphasis] = Off.
-Set [AGC] = 0.
-Set [Content type(HDMI)] = Off.
-Set [Block NR] = Off.
-Set [Mosquito NR] = Off.
-Set [Motion smoother] = Off or try which setting gives less jitter/blur.
The worst blurring are on the LCD tv's!
