Evidence of D5200 banding in official Nikon photos
In reply to jonikon, Feb 5, 2013

The D5200 shows banding even in at least one of the official Nikon photos as well, (which may have been pulled from the Nikon website by now). Banding can best be seen in the lower right hand corner of this night scene and is most noticeable on the dark building tops, but can also be seen less easily elsewhere in the image. Fine details have also turned to mush as well. Very disappointing compared to what I see with my D7000/D5100 images.

If the D7100 does no better with the IQ, I will be skipping that model completely even if it has some features I wish the D7000 had.
