Anti Aliasing help

Looking at the description in the only difference between the K-5 II and the IIs is the removal of the anti-aliasing filter in the IIs. Is moiré interference only seen in video? If so, then for a photographer not doing video like myself, does the IIs offer better resolution without any sacrifice elsewhere?

Just trying to figure out the difference in the models for my use.

Her's the writeup from

Photokina 2012: Pentax Ricoh has announced its latest flagship DSLRs - the K-5 II and K-5IIs. The 's' version, which costs $100 more, comes without an anti-aliasing filter, to offer higher resolution at the risk of more prominent moiré interference patterns. Both cameras feature 16MP sensors and the weather-sealed magnesium alloy build of the original K-5.
