This will be my first post using this forum There is a little of a back story on my D700 journey. I've shot with the D700 from 2011 up until early 2012 and then it had became my backup camera to the D3S and later the D4. I found a killer deal on Kjiji with a local buyer selling his D700 for $1800 and only a shutter count of 1444. I I ended up purchasing the new D700 for $1500 after extensive testing.

My thought process.....I'm probably upgrading to the D4S when it comes out and want to sell my D4 before it drops in value. My older D700 body had an actuation count of 147,000 and I needed to ensure a trusty body to carry me over if I sold my D4 and there was a great lapse in time until I could get my hands on the D4S.

This brings me to today. I now have time to really mess around with my new D700 and am now noticing some very troubling banding and horizontal and vertical pixel issues. I don't know how else to explain it.

I've searched and searched an can't find anything remotely close to what is going on. Any ideas? I've shot in raw, jpeg, low iso, high iso, wide open closed down and get the same results. Every 4 out 10 images is like this. The only thing where I don't have this happening is in studio with a strobe, although there is banding.
