David it's just a red-herring.
(In my vague opinion the thread should be deleted.)

I've had numerous e mails back and forth with Olympus over this issue and to be fair to them, they did respond quite quickly to my issue. As I've explained in the initial post, the camera was being used in RAW mode only and this issue was showing on the back of the camera straight away after taking the image with no user post processing in camera. The issue was also the same importing to an Ipad using Olympus Image Share.

Below is the final response from them and basically, they're saying if you shoot in RAW mode only, then the preview from the built in jpeg thumbnail is no good for viewing on the camera's LCD screen.

Being a working professional who nearly almost shoots RAW only, this isn't good news. I could easily be in a position where I'd need to preview an image to a client on location and wouldn't want to show them a faulty looking image.

Never had this issue when I've shot RAW only with Nikons for many years. I think if Olympus want to tempt more pros to make the change to smaller lighter MFT systems they'll need to improve this.

Below is the final response from Olympus today

The RAW format is not suitable for viewing on the camera LCD. For this purpose please use the JPEG recording mode. If you need RAW files but also you want to preview the pictures directly on the camera then select RAW+JPEG shooting mode (e.g. RAW+SN) and preview the JPEG files which is much faster and without any artefacts.
Can I just confirm, are we still talking about your "friend in Japan" who cannot get a raw file to us, or are we now dealing with your experience with the camera?

Re: EM-1 Strange banding in blue sky

I'd say leave the thread. I'm enjoying all the E-M1 threads where the 'experts' and 'pros' don' know how to use their tools.
