5D Mark ii Banding (?) Issue

[ Edited ]
Hey everyone... I'm hoping there's someone out there that can help me figure something out.. I have been having issues with my Canon 5D Markii. I have done a ton of troubleshooting and research but it doesn't seem like there's any explanation for the issue I'm having.
If you take a look at the pictures below, you will see white "banding"? At first I thought it was some kind of sun flair, but it doesn't matter the time of day or where the sun is or even what lens I use. The issue is intermittent, and I've even taken it to my local camera store (they had no ideas as to the issue)
The two track pictures were taken at about 4:00 PM .. 5 minutes from each other, same settings, just different sides of the track. Track runs from South to North.a644d36d-b33b-42da-a1d8-ebe65c45218c.png69306026-e269-4d89-8226-7006b0d32d33.png2cea29e5-2993-4e1e-b3d6-5610c4896896.png

It could be a hair or two above the sensor. You can use the sensor cleaning function to take a look-see.

That is weird looking.  Turn off all of the noise reduction and lighting correction settings.  Does it occur with all lenses?

It is too out of focus to be on the sensor.

 

Does it ever move around?

 

Could be a light leak around the lens. Try covering the lens/mount junction with black gaffers tape.

It never moves around. Never though about the mount junction having a light leak... gonna have to look into that

Shutter failure. My 30D looks the same when taking pictures with a fast shutter speed.

I had considered that.  The lines are not straight, though.  There are two nice curves.
