just bought the Mkiii Canon 5d as a back up for my other and there is a dark banding across the top of the screen. Ive been told this is to be expected, however I checked same settings with my other mkiii camera and no banding. is this a failing shutter?

Looks like an impending failure, or "shutter bounce", which tends to happen at high shutter speeds.

Just how "used' is this body?
That looks like the shutter curtain.
***Edit* Mike beat me to it.

Shutter replacement is the only fix. It is neither cheap or easy. Plan on spending at least $300. Maybe more.
