Re: 5d Mark III low iso poor performance.

A bit of chroma noise at ISO 100 in the shadows is normal, but it usually looks a bit mottled and more pleasant than digital noise usually tends to be. I have never seen banding like this in images from my 5D Mark III. This is something that was seen occasionally in the 5D Mark II. I would return the camera for servicing or exchange it for a new body. In my opinion this is unacceptable at ISO 100.

Here is a recent image I took with some shadows in the background. NR was default.
