Oly 17mm f1.8 banding or just ISO 6400?
Feb 26, 2013

Here we have a crop from a ISO 6400 image taken with my E-M5.  (Bad photo of my guitar.)

There is banding in this photo.  I'm not sure if it is much worse than one would expect in low

light or if it is worse with the Oly 17mm f1.8.  I haven't really noticed this with any other lens, not even the 20mm f1.7.

Thoughts?  Doesn't seem to be much of a problem.  Just can't help seeing it.
