You may need to post a photo to show us exactly what you mean.

If you use a polarized filter it can create banding at wide angles.

Not sure what's causing it. Are you shooting in raw or jpeg? What processing are you doing to the file and what software is being used? I vaguely remember someone having similar problems that was caused by the software (settings) being used.

I am shooting in raw and this shot and other shots with this problem are without processing.

There must be some processing for it to be converted to JPEG.

File is no longer available but take a look at one of my previous threads here and see if it is the same thing you are seeing in your pictures.

As in another thread, over-processing of JPEG files can also cause banding.

I have had the same banding issue a few times when re-sizing images. What software did you use to re-size the image? If you are using Photoshop (or Elements, though I'm not sure if Elements is the same, as I have never used it), then make sure you select Bicubic Sharper when reducing the size of the image.

I had a similar problem within a week or two of getting my k20 d, I sent it back to JP who just reinstalled the firmware, had I known, of course, I could have done that myself.

I think, I must sent it back too.

Before you do that why not post a RAW file for members to have a look and and try with different raw converters. I see it it too when I zoom in on the LCD screen sometimes and I have done so with previous different cameras, all of them I think. Once it goes through the raw converter it disappears.
