Damn, i guess i'm going to have to stop shooting all those concentric black and white circles i love so much and start shooting real world objects/scenes where the effect of having no AA filter doesn't become apparent and the trade off of extra sharpness is an advantage.

Also did you know that theres a new sub-forum on dpreview called "Photographic Science and Technology" for all these boring, let's hyper analyse our gear, MFT charts, etc... type posts?

It does however, highlight the fact that it's photos of manmade patterns that are most likely to cause problems, since many things are manufactured this way, but these type of regular patterns rarely occur in nature.  Hence, wedding, fashion or architectural photographers might hit problems, but nature & landscape photographers probably won't.

To the OP, do a google image search for moire for examples.

Everything to do with photography is a guideline. The only rules are generally enforced by the police.
