New Canon 5d mk3 horizontal banding at iso200 - faulty body?

Exif data, HTP was on

What I did was fix the banding on two of the OP's photos very easily and post them back here for all to see that the solution was not a big deal. Certainly nothing to be all worked up about and talking about the 5D3 being rubbish. Lots of trolling going on in this forum still, and it really grows tiresome.

I don't need the OP to confirm he was using HTP. He posted a raw file and here are the properties. I have redacted his name and camera serial number.

I think it would be more helpful if before any bold claims such as "camera X is rubbish" or "I see no banding at all", the OP could confirm that he is using HTP. What I've seen from the raw file posted is strongly reminiscent of what I get when using it.

Banding won't disappear though with HTP off, the "banding threshold" (if that exists) just goes deeper in the shadows.
