NO NO NO it is NOT a 'known issue' it's a fallacy maintained by inexperienced users who think they know how to use gear professionally and don't.

They don't know the contrast limits of their camera and how to overcome them and they just blame the gear.

It's utterly pathetic.

It's not a myth at all. It's a known issue with Canon sensors. It has been noted by many of the top landscape shooters around who use Canon gear.

The banding is there in the shadows on RAW on my 7D, and even sometimes in bokeh areas. However, it is usually faint, and usually doesn't survive noise-reduction.

So, while there is banding, it is usually down in the noise enough that proper noise reduction eliminates it. Still, it would be preferable if it wasn't there. Sometimes I would like to keep micro-detail by not doing any luminance noise reduction, but banding prevents this. It isn't a big issue, but is something Canon needs to work on.
