D700 BANDING....this may be real, folks

Okay....I've got a new D700 and my buddy has one.

Here's an ISO 6400 shot with the D700. Note the horizontal streak coming from the light reflected in the window. It extends towards the left and is quite obvious.

And here, moments later, I took the same shot with my D300 at ISO 6400. No streak.

I tried several lenses. The D700 streak is THERE regardless of the lens. I called my buddy. Worried, he tried the same test....and got the same streak, but NOT on his D300.

Comments are welcome. I'm staying calm for the moment. If other D3's and D700's don't do this at high ISO's, what's going on? Bad batch of D700's already? Or is this the nature of the particular FX beast?
