Any reports of moiré patterns?

A number of us use the GXR with the M mount module. This module is produced without an anti-aliasing (AA) filter. Others may use a Leica M9, also delivered without an AA filter. A few of us may have both (Godfrey), or some other non-AA model.

Have any of you users of non-AA cameras experienced moiré pattern problems?

For non-professional use I do not believe moiré pattern appearance will be a big problem, but I would like to hear from others. I have a Sony NEX-7 I intend to use exclusively with Leica M mount lenses and am contemplating having the AA filter removed. Also, if my grip on reality slips enough I may obtain a Nikon D800 which is available with or without the AA filter.

Any comments will be appreciated.
