In order to see moiré, in addition to weak or no AA filter, one needs to have a lens that would have still high contrast on those high spatial frequencies. Lenses work as low-pass filters, not many providing sufficient contrast for moiré patterns to occur. As a corollary, FF camera with the same MP is more susceptible to moiré than APS-C or smaller sensor.

I frequently notice moiré with Pentax-FA 24-90mm and 28-90mm lenses, even though Sony NEX-5N I'm using those lenses with has a weak AA filter:
