Banding Issues

This a comment for this page on the website
There have been several samples floating about now that people in the USA are receiving their orders.  The raw samples, unlike the raw NEFs from the D7000/D5100, behave poorly when the shadows are brought up.  There is a distinct banding pattern that appears to be an issue with the DAC/readout-process that creates evenly spaced horizontal lines (in landscape orientation) on recoveries of 2EV and up.  This is not unlike the banding visible in the early 5D mk2 samples.  I see this as a major strike against a camera replacing the excellent sensor of the D5100/D7000.  I definitely would not trade "up" in this case.
