Anyone else experience occasional moire on solid fabrics? I've had it happen a few times. Very strange.

A speculative question, does it happen in the electronic shutter or any shutter mode? I am thinking of this because the moire patterns seem to emerge from overlapping patterns. I sometimes notice it on TV when a person is wearing something with the right pattern to create on-screen moire patterns. Could the cause possibly include the shutter speed selected?
 
Both instances were the following:

RF 85mm F2 STM, ISO 400, 1/160, f5.6
RF 70-200 F4 L IS USM, ISO 400, 1/200 (Possibly 1/250, can’t remember specifically.) , f4
Both in EFCS mode. Perhaps I need to be in Mechanical to avoid this? If so, that kills my idea of using the R8 as a second body… ughhh.

I‘m going to shoot today in mechanical and see if it pops up again…

Please keep in mind that I asked speculative questions.
 
I understand, I’m doing some research to see if that moire in electronic shutter modes is more prevalent. (I’m really trying to talk myself into the R8 as a second body because it’s an entire grand + cheaper than the R6.2, but the R6.2 is just so good and I’m not sure I want to give up a mechanical shutter option.)

Well, if you keep your cameras for at least three years, the additional cost turns out to be about $1 a day!
 
lol, at $2,500 a pop I’ll keep them for more than three years! Or better yet, sell them off to pay for the newest whiz bang!
See! Now you have better evidence that an R62 is a better option at a little extra cost. Well worth it! (PS I taught marketing for over forty years!)
