Banding yes... Issue no
5

I have the D7100 a lot of scrutiny before I decided to buy, fully aware of the "banding issue" it was the first thing I tried and here is my take...

Extreme shadows show noise in a horizontal (wide side) striped band like pattern when pushed 3EV or more. 3EV is where I can notice it, but I am good with that since it is a non issue for any reasonably exposed image. If you are hoping to recover an image from total black then this may not be the right camera.
