High iso chroma noise is more of an issue shooting birds, than moiré. To spot moiré, you will really have to view images at 100%, and when I first got the K5IIs, and looked for signs of moiré, it always turned out to be color noise.
In some 3000 shots of all sorts, I've only been able to succesfully shoot real moiré in..... 1 image!

That's what I found as well.  The only times I found it were when shooting the local Herons, where I found what I thought was moire pattern on some of the large but fine feathers, and again only when taken at about a 45 degree angle to the bird.  A bit of colour noise removal did the trick, so no moire as yet, just very detailed shots.
