At first glance var does seem lazy, I use it regularly while working on a large codebase with a lot of 'technical debt'.
I use it quite a lot in my professional code development having been encouraged to do so.

There again I work in an environment where comments are frowned upon, the thinking being that well written code should not have to be documented - a philosophy which I don't agree with.
I think the use of var fits in with this 'no comments' philosophy as it is not explicitly stated what the type of the variable is and you have to figure it out with intellisense or by inspecting the method's return type.
