If I were buying right now between these two, I would pick the S for sure. From what I have read by pentax about the 645D (also no AA filter), and from users of the D800E (same pixel density as K5 models), you will very rarely run into moire, and it is only visable at certain times, from certain angles, and only at certain resolutins on various mediums. For example, if you are printing and happen to see it, either printing larger, smaller, or cropping the original slightly will remove moire. Anytime you change the pattern frequency slightly, it goes bye bye. Same applies to viewing on a monitor ect.

IMO the benefit of always having higher resolution shots outweighs moire in half a percent of your shots. My next purchase will be the K3, likely with no LPF either, and I won't think twice about it.
