dark area when shooting at 8000 shutter speed

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? 20210212_170255_resized.jpg

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

Greetings,

Just how "used' is this body?

 

That looks like the shutter curtain.

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