K5IIs autofocus and moiré

Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and feeling my way so forgive me if this is already a subject which has been flogged to death. Does anyone have real-world experience (weddings, for example) of the new autofocus in the K5II and K5IIs? I'm wondering how well it works compared to the K5 in low, tungsten light. I'd love to see shots of brides, and anyone else, to get an idea of how likely moiré is to spoil shots in which clothing appears. As a wedding and people snapper that would be almost every shot I take so I'm very interested in that, too.

I'd say if your priority was low-light image quality and AF accuracy, not an extra 10% or so resolution, the K5II may be the best option for you. Spare yourself any worry about potential moire.

By all accounts the K-5II AF, even under low-light tungsten, has no problems.
