For all of the shots I've edited luminance NR on the shadow areas has been enough - without resorting to debanding - to deal with pattern noise.

Good call

I do find that avoiding ISO 100 - I prefer ISO 200 or 250 - gives me much cleaner shadows.

Unfortunate as ISO 100 really is cleaner in other areas. I'm happy I currently don't have to sacrifice the pros of 100 to get less noise in the shadows. Excellent strategy on your part though. Makes perfect sense.

If I was commonly shooting at ISO 100 and lifting shadows it would be an issue for me.

Exactly, and why its not an oversold issue in the eyes of those who do work at 100 for the most part. Something they just have to deal with in workflow. Regardless, things keep getting better!

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
