There are early indicators that Canon might have finally conquered their banding issue when you lift shadows.

Go take one of the available Canon samples of the 6D (with harsh shadows) and lift them in LR, and see for yourself. Yes they are JPEGs, but it still might be a good sign.

My hope too is that the 6D sensor is a new design from Canon that will reduce low ISO pattern noise but I doubt we can tell from JPEG's. The lowest levels in the file are most likely clipped to black in the JPEG conversion so they won't render anything when the shadows are lifted but I hope I'm wrong. I can see no other reason why Canon would produce 3 FF sensors simultaneously that are so close in pixel density.
