Here is a larger image, but to me the banding is painfully obvious on the wall on the right side.

This is really concerning. Is it just a bad camera or is this typical?

Cropped a 800x800 pixel section from the extreme upper-right corner of your image. PSP X4 High-Pass Sharpen (Radius=8.0, Strength=100%). Converted to composite RGB luminace only. High-Pass Sharpened again (Radius=8.0, Strength=50%). It sure looks like banding. Note how uniform it is - all the way to the right-most edge of the image, and (also) appearing on the surface of the darker object's surface located in the upper-right corner. Hard to imagine light through blinds appearing so consistently on both the wall's surface as well as the darker object's surface ...
