Now, you try to blame flex fires. All lenses have these wires. Stop pouring apparent BS.

I never stated that it is the flex wires.

But it is not so easy to rule out the flex wires which carry the current drawn by the aperture motor and the focus motor. Flex wires come in different shielding quality. You can mess up with a wrong design, or if you try to save money and buy the cheap solution.

However, the voltage regulator on the PCB has been blamed before for causing the banding (Detail Man / Anders). In this sense the power draw of the aperture motor and of the focus motor requires voltage regulation, which results in banding. The different characteristics of the banding observed with only the aperture motor connected and with only the focus motor connected may be related to the difference of their power cycles.
