There is a benefit in terms of increased detail and microcontrast, as Leica, Phase One, Fuji, Pentax, Hasselblad et al have been doing for years and years.  They aren't wrong. Microcontrast is a foreign concept to most APSC users, simply because there's never before been a DX camera that can pull it off on a regular basis.  The D7100 does, and how.  Put a gold ring Nikkor or even a 50G on that guy and go shoot some pictures with detail then report back.

The fact that someone at a particular website can't tell the difference shooting jpg should have been a red flag and shouldn't prevent all of you from downloading identical raws from Imaging Resource and doing your own work.  Serious shooters who are after best quality do not shoot jpg on a Nikon DSLR.  Might as well use an OM5 if you're shooting jpg.

Please, someone.  Show me a pic from a D7000 with this kind of 3rd dimension, microcontrast and intricate detail.  My rough guess is that it's about 20% better than any DX camera I've seen and pretty close to a D800e.  Nikon has hit it out of the park with this one .

Reilly, cameralabs is among the most respected photography review sites there is, and I've never seen this Guy with a testing agenda.  At this point you appear to be getting angry with anyone who holds even a slightly different opinion from yourself. Making absolute categorical statements doesn't make them correct.
