OMD banding with 12-50mm zoom!
Jun 8, 2012

Hey everyone! I posted this same info at mu-43, but thought I would share here as well...

As most of us are aware, there have been banding issues reported with the OMD + Panasonic 20mm 1.7 combo. I wanted to confirm this phenomenon and sure enough, it happened for me. Then I decided to try to duplicate the same using the 12-50mm. I wasn't expecting it to happen with this combo because so far, all the threads I've read have said that this only happens with the OMD+Pana 20mm. Well, I'm sad to report that it also occurred with the 12-50mm. Granted, I really underexposed the shot, but the banding is there.

Here's the image on flickr:

So, now what??? Keep the highly sought after camera? Hope for a firmware update? Return it?
