Thanks for the example. That X3 image is covered with aliasing artifacts. It may lack most color moire but it's full of luminance moire. The lack of an AA filter is one reason of many I've never seriously considered a Sigma camera and the example above shows why.

I'm sorry, but I can't see what you are referring to. The coloured moire patterns in the image on the left are obvious, but I'm not sure what faults in the image on the right are "luminance moire". Can you explain please? This is a genuine question, I'm not being facetious.
