Moire that only shows up with certain magnifications is almost certainly a monitor issue, because true in-camera moire will be independent of viewing size. This is unavoidable.

I was just scrolling through some of my photos takenof the same subject, but had been resized and sharpened differently. "Moire" popped in and out, depending on the photo and resolution viewed at. The original photo, viewed full size, had none.

I suspect it's the beating between the photo and monitor pixel patterns. Certain textures and pattens will exaggerate this. It's going to print fine, so don't worry.

Thanks for the feedback, tko. My worries were only about screen-based viewing, as the photo will likely never reach paper... other than a business card.
