Banding with Panasonic 20/1.7 and GX7?
Sep 30, 2013

It occurred to me that I hadn't noticed any high ISO banding that I've read about when using my 20/1.7.  With my GH2, I rarely used ISO1600 so it hasn't been an issue for me.  And with the GX7, I haven't noticed it when doing various test shots at ISO3200 and 6400.  I do, however, notice it in shadow areas if I try raising shadows or boosting exposure a lot, during post processing.  But by the time it shows up, the noise is already obnoxious enough that the banding really isn't a limitation.

So for me, banding isn't a practical issue.  Oh, my experience is with raw files only.
