Damn. I really should have asked that before buying as it's more something I'd use for at a whim occasional matches.
Not to dissuade anyone from purchasing Payday as it is indeed pretty damn solid but I actually found the community to be very very quiet.
For those wondering about the online community yes it's still there and you can still get people very easily to play with you.
I didn't manage to get a full team going in the last couple of games I tried to start/join and gave up in the end, though I admittedly tend to play this quite late at night for some odd reason.
The community probably got a substantial boost with this sale but that died out after a week after I purchased my copy (during another Steam sale some time age)
Anyhow, I'd recommend it if you have friends to play with or can accept that you may not be able to dip in whenever you feel like it beyond next week.
That said, if it has AI bot options its not so bad (i haven't launched it yet)
