Thanks, Anders and Gregory, for those suggestions. I've added a note that similar banding is occasionally reported with other lenses, but not as commonly as it is with the 20/1.7. I've also added a link to Gregory's album showing the three different kinds of banding.

I've not been able to find any reports of the persistence or absence of the problem with the E-M5II except those of Gregory. If anyone has more information, please speak up!

Hi Alan,

Here is one report regarding the absence of the banding with the E-M5.2 (which at that point led to speculations that the sensor was the same as in the E-M1). And here is a second one. I know both posters to be well informed about the problem, to be astute observers, and to have copies of the 20/1.7 known to produce the problem with other bodies. But I find no reason to doubt the report of Egregius V either. So I take these conflicting results to underscore what I already said about the variability we have to reckon with.
