EOS R6 Moiré. Faulty sensor, or just the camera?

So I've been using the R6 for a couple months now and I simply love it. I couldn't be happier for this to be my first Mirrorless EOS.

The camera seems to make sharper photos at about the same resolution as the 6D mk 1 and 5D mk 3.

One thing I've been noticing lately is a pretty nasty presentation of Moiré though, creating some wacky color patterns.

Below is an example which I took last weekend to try and recreate the problem. (look at the silo thingy, and the fences in front of the power plant.

Processed image, with nothing done about the moiré patterns.

Below is the image processed with Lightroom's "Enhance details" function.

I used "Enhanced Details" in lightroom to negate the problem and it works well here, however that is not always the case.

Has anybody been experiencing similar problems with their R6's? Is this a well known problem, or should I be worried something's off with my sensor?

Thanks in advance,


Canon EOS R6
