Not in my experience - shooting tea pots at F4 and ISO 6400 then boosting exposure by a stop and cranking contrast to max in lightroom does not happen that often for me.

Shooting my 20mm F1.7 and EM5 in low light however does and i've never seen any banding.

ISO 800, F1.7 and 1/10th of a second sucks in some pretty low light, certainly enough for me.

One of many of my low-light images ruined by the Panny 20mm + the E-M5:

Shoulda had a tripod with, but I hadn't planned on still being up on the mountain this late at night.

It's a real shame Panasonic doesn't seem to have addressed this issue in the new version of this lens. Hard for me to understand how they could go to the trouble of releasing an updated design without taking care of this problem.

Your "very late at night" looks like very good morning. No surprise!
