I don't know what you are comparing there. It seems that there has been a lot of shadow lifting? Is that what we are looking at there?
No, we are not seeing just banding in shadows. What did the guy actually change in lightroom? He says he has done certain things, but now what, exactly.
And the stripes occur with a lot of light without pulling shadows silly amounts (no pulling at all) too, which is the point. That one sensor "blotches" more than another when pulling shadows 5 stops, i could indeed care a bit less than striping patterns from PD AF masking.
I don't think that pulling shadows 4-6 stops is quite common.

The subject is not the issue (what is what makes it "useless" to you), it is the effect you get from the PD AF lines/masking.
How is this for "useless shot"?
The striping is much more clear here, in the blue/dark background on both sides of the model.
My comment was not about the striping.
The lighting condition is so extreme in this shot that it is simply no use case in the real world.
Thus what is the point of concluding anything from this?
If you point a laser into your lens, you will surely have even more banding.
As mentioned, the sensor surface is far from being deep black thus freak effects will happen with ALL cameras.
Ever since digital cameras came up there were lots of discussions about banding.
Two months after the release nobody cares anymore because people will start taking real pictures.

How ironic, Klaus. The only reason the striping became an issue (with Sony mirrorless cameras) was because people were taking real pictures and discovered the weird patterns.
