I don't have this camera, but I don't think this is normal.  Noise like this makes sense at very high ISO (and can usually be removed with noise reduction), but not at low or moderate ISO.

Are you shooting JPEG or RAW?  If JPEG, is it straight from camera?  It almost looks like a contouring that might occur with noise combined with low bit-depth processing.
