Besides the increased resolution and other engineering improvements, there were two ergonomic changes that I love (which don't show up on the DXO tests):  (1) Nikon moved the video button out of the way of my thumb when I use AE-L/AF-L as AF-ON (which is how I usually shoot) and put it behind the shutter release where it's out of reach unless I want to use it, and (2) the "OK" button can be set to zoom to a full-size enlargement to check focus during playback.  Performance measurements are useful and interesting, but they aren't everything!

I agree with you Jim. The handling, AF module, and software improvements Nikon made with the D7100  are useful and desirable upgrades over the D7000,  and are actually of more interest to me as a D7000 owner, than the new 24MP sensor. If Nikon had increased the buffer size of the D7100, I would probably be replacing my D7000 with the D7100. But they did not, so I won't.
