No, actually it's not. More than likely it's a question too technical/picky for the people that populate this forum. My mark ii has a few hot pixels and always has (i think), it also has faint vertical banding when I mix long exposures with a certain type of post processing. There are plenty of other 'minor' issues that exist out there, and i simply wanted to see if there was a dedicated/easier/expedited way to check these things.
maybe you shoot snapshots of dogs or flowers or something, but for my type of work these small flaws can add time to my workflow and can get annoying.
Has any one manufactured a digital camera yet that didn't have some kinda 'small flaw' ? Canon has been known for banding issues in many of their bodies if you push the shadows, even the 5D Mark III. Hot pixels? They can be quite normal in the digital world.
Excuse me now while I geaux find a flower as my Golden passed away last month.
