The X-trans approach claims to reduce the risk of colour aliasing/moire effects but it can't do anything about luminance aliasing (jaggies, false diagonal striped patterns and the like) unfortunately....

I got one photo with an artifact, on the mesh steel surface of a drawbridge. I fixed most of it in post processing.
Drawbridge
And note that the photo is large enough that you should view it at least two meters away from the monitor.

You can see the artifact in this 100 percent crop of the image before additional post processing:
Crop, before repair

The lens was a rather wide one, a Zeiss 28/2.8 set at f/8. Zeiss lenses have amazing resolution. And bright sun bounced off the mesh into the camera.

A fact, yes. Outweighed by thousands of other shots. No problem.
