That just tells you that the D800 model has not got a strong enough AA filter. Look at say the Fuji S5 Pro.  This was designed as a wedding photographer's camera where a very wide dynamic range and freedom from artefacts are much more important than forensic sharpness.  That meant using a very strong AA filter. It's very difficult to get super crisp shots from a S5pro but it doesn't produce moire either. Presumably with the D800, Nikon are favouring detail over freedom from moire (more so with the e model). Trade off.
