Banding is caused by electric interference within the camera, not the sensor itself. It's like the noise that comes out of the car radio when there are cell phones around. Some companies are better than others in designing an interference free environment. Sony being an electronics giant has the budget and know how but Leica probably knows the exact source of the interference but does not have the technology or budget to cancel it.

This reply is not meant to be derogatory or rude. Banding is caused by the photographer and not the camera. If the image is underexposed you will get banding. A properly exposed image should not. My personal opinion. Every camera, by design, has limits. When you try and get the camera to do something it is not capable of and exceed those limits you get payback.

Interestingly I have found that Nik's Dfine 2 does pretty good job of clearing up any banding issue in the test sample from the Dpreview website. Here are a very quickly done before and after. The Lr setting to get a balanced exposure on their image were +4.00 in exposure and +56 in the shadows slider   Downloaded DNG (Detail) Hello guest!

I didn't find any banding - except from a very experimental try:

I think most pictures do not show any banding. Look here: http://brunoraffa.ch/leica-q

 

I am very happy with the Q and love it :-)

Yes and indeed the banding issue has gone. The Q really rocks

I was curious if the OIS in the camera has effect on banding (and noises), so I did a low light shots with the OIS "on" and "off", and compared the results;

 

To my eyes; OIS "off" has obviously produced less noises and banding.

Sorry, but this is nonsense. Banding and noise doesn't depend on image stabilizing.
