If it doesn't show at 100%, it's -not- the camera. Software editing programs can do this at various "magnifications" soft proofing.

That's what I'm hearing from various people here. I guess I don't shoot a lot of suits like this one, because this is the first I've seen of this problem.

Are you saying that other cameras would be equally as likely to have this problem?

Yes. It's a software "preview" causing the problem. In general, any view that isn't 50%, 25%, 12.5% etc is very likely to have weird artifacts as what you are seeing is a low quality preview/downsampling designed for speed of rendering, not quality. Even at those % you aren't really seeing what a final downsampled image might look like exactly, it's simply a preview.

Bottom line in this case, this disaster only exists in software previewing downsampled sizes.
