I can understand the compromise to achieve better IQ but the problem i that it looks like Nikon try to go over board with it with too much focus on AA filter removal

Talking to the Nikon reps at NAB...they went without a filter in the D7100 for not the reason most would think. They learned from the D800E that none was required even though the math said they should need one for all the old obvious reasons like moire and such. Because of what the learned from the D800e...they simply didn't put one in the D7100 because there simply was no need...It wasn't to bump resolution.

Translation: "From here (24mp) on afterwards, all sensors will eventually remove the AA filter and we will look back on 2013 wondering what all the fuss was about."

I still think the real benefit of the filter removal is more a subjective thing than an outright performance thing, but you got to admit, the enthusiast echo-chamber made filterless the monster that it was. Deflating it was probably inevitable.
