It was somewhere between 2-3EV when you had A-DL engaged at maximum in really high dynamic scenes and tried to push shadows off of JPGs which were the only things available at the time.  The latest RAWs don't really show it until you get really deep shadows pushed quite heavily. Pushing shadows in a scene that's already been pushed is double jeopardy.

Hmm.  I've been testing this cam and not seeing the banding but I think you've answered way.  I always run a raw work-flow even on my tests.  Mostly I've been working on shadow noise and have pretty good success with one formula.  Would be sad to know if in a High ISO situation I couldn't bias some shadow noise out and correct it in post - but then get banding.  I'm reassured now.
