Re: D7100 moire, is this corrected at all in camera?

Moire is more likely with cameras with a low number of MP. Camera makers used a low pass filter to reduce the chance of moire with the trade off of a bit less sensor resolution.

With higher MP cameras the risk of moire is much reduced, and post process moire removal tools are now more common.

The D7100 does not have a low pass filter to help prevent moire but even so because it has twice as many MP as 12 MP you are much less likely to get an image with a moire problem.

A great painter gets credit for artistic skill rather than owning marvellous brushes. There is a common assumption a great photograph requires a marvellous camera. Usually the photographer and not the camera deserves most of the credit.
