On the second photo, check her right arm, looks to have some from image posted...
Here is one of many examples I have, complete cropped photo of my daughter:
D800E w/ 24-70 f/2.8 @ 70mm f/3.5 iso 100 1/320th
100% crop with moire':
Same crop with exposure pulled down to see moire' better:
I have seen it many times in clothing. But as above shows, brightness of the area can effect what you see. So it's there, you just have to know where to look. I just found this before I posted as an example, photo taken this past weekend on Easter.
I have only encounted one shot of moire in several thousand. It was a corrugated roof taken from some distance. The whole D800E moire issue was completely overblown. Remember all the expert(?) reviewers warning about moire in the D800E before they'd even used one?

>Why did you say "not for the old folks?" Because I don't want to be responsible for untimely heart attack. Hence the warning. Notice how very few responses to this thread I got. That is probably because people dropping like flies
>And, at what age does one become an "old folk?" That would depend on the individual. Those who are on Viagra can probably be older
Cute. It's not a big deal, but I would suggest you're buying into a stereotype regarding the attitudes of "old folks." You should see some of the images my 92 yo father emails to me.
I would suggest a more appropriate phase might have been, "...not for people easily shocked by images of busty women in costumes showing cleavage." Leaving out the age aspect.
Regarding the Viagra comment, I believe the average age of Viagra users is early 50's. Being an average, that would suggest there are many uses younger than that. In fact, there has been an explosion of users in the 18-45 age group in recent years.
Food for thought.
Regarding your post, I'm not a D800 user, but it seems like the risk of moire is limited and perhaps mostly a concern to fashion photos.
