One other thing I find really weird and I dunno if you noticed it when you had both cams - the despised vertical pattern noise on my copy seems to come and go almost at random. Sometimes it shows up like the proverbial (ahem) without touching the exposure or shadows, while at others it's either barely visible at all with a 2-stop push or it goes away entirely at higher ISOs. I would like to understand exactly what triggers this behavior so I can learn to avoid it!

Best Regards,

I did not see the banding on the 5DIII and I rarely see it on my 5DII. Like you I see no pattern as to when it will appear. The occasions when it does show up make no sense as conditions are ordinary and then it can show up in a near-identical shot that was clean. My feeling is that it's a processing glitch and it varies from sensor to sensor.


Thanks - it's nice to know I'm not going nuts! (at least not yet... ;))
