I don't think it's over the top at all. I downloaded his RAW file and reviewed it in ACR and CS5 on 27" calibrated monitor. I can see the banding WITHOUT lifting the shadow even 1% on my screen. That's poor and lowers the effective IQ to a VERY low level for me. I simply couldn't live with it for professional work - in fact I don't understand how so many have and do or just selectively pretend it's not there?

Do you own a 5D3? Or did you just download these raw files and make a blanket judgement based on them alone?

I have no banding issues with my 5D3. Many others don't either. Perhaps we are just the lucky ones and got cameras similar to the ones that the review sites have been getting - but the OP has one that is more representative of the norm? LOL!

But, it matters not. If you don't feel the 5D3 is up to your lofty standards, you are free to get a different camera.
