The 1/FL rule, even corrected for sensor size, requires that image is 12x8" viewed from 2 ft away, the standard for DoF and all image characteristics.

At 100 iso, you'll never see the difference in a 5MP E1 and a 24MP D7100 in an 8X12 print viewed from 2 feet away anyway, much less motion blur from using 1/focal length shutter speed.

If you want to take advantage of the extra resolution a higher pixel density can provide, you have to improve technique/optics over what a lower MP camera has or the bad technique/optics will negate any advantage.
