You may be referring to the general incidence of moire across all photographic subjects? If so, I think it's worth keeping in mind that such averages are bracketed by categories with much higher incidences and much lower incidences of moire. I think that buying a D800 for its amazingly high resolution invites a concentration on photographically capturing subjects possessed of very fine detail, complex patterns and textural juxtapositions - bird feathers among other things - subject matter which can cause moire.
