According to to my understanding, moiré is also dependent on output size and resolution. For the most of it you may have it on a screen but not in print.

I once had blueish moiré patterns in black fabric with a Pentax 645D with FA 120 4 Macro. With the D800 I have noticed it with feather detail but no yet with fabric.

I do not think that moiré provides indication for highly resolving lenses.

I was not talking about all Nikon lenses but I think all D800 users are aware that many lenses are not exactly designed for it.

Then you are wrong, I have seen HM and others large advertising billboards with moire in jeans and other clothes, not a pretty sight, taken with MF

Moire occur as long that the lens out resolves the sensor, where and when it is seen depends on the line structures and camera and the  aa-filter (or no filter at all)
