Your samples look pretty good, I like the idea of no AA filter. It seems Nikon have gone in that direction lately, the new APS-C compact also has no AA filter.

Regrading the light banding, I was one of the people here that worked on some dark samples to see the effect. In my experience, I have never used more than 1-1.5 stop of recovery with the D7000, so I think that's not a big issue. Banding only happens when one tries to recover areas where the 3 channels, especially the green one, has RAW values below 10, that's very very dark.

AF: that may be the most relevant aspect of this new camera. Have you tested the various points. Since its sensor is denser than the D800's and I have seen some problems with PDAF for extreme lateral points (mostly the leftmost AF point), I wonder if you have checked that.

Thanks for the good job, rather fast!
