[img] FW2.0 and banding

Before the upgrade I would get banding on average 5/10 on ISO 800, 8/10 on ISO 1600 and almost 10/10 on ISO 3200. So much that I stopped shooting anything beyond 400.

After upgrading to FW 2.0, to my surprise (with limited number of shots), now maybe 2/10 of the ISO 1600's have banding, and almost none of the ISO 800's

I shot about 150 frames mostly in ISO-1600 over the weekend, and I'm very much a happy camper

There is a huge rolling gate behind the tree that opens up the stage to a larger space, hence the ribbed effect
