+1 that after all the pixel peeping and academic comparisons of IQ, in the actual image sizes that the owners publish and print their personal pictures for consumption, the incremental IQ offered by the D7100 is virtually non-existent and unecessary.

Really, Jared?  Did you have to go to dishonest?  Is that really a collegial Canadian way to interact with your fellow photographers, some of whom have been comparing pics since way before you were born?

What you really meant to say is that you can't see a difference and don't think anyone else should be able to do so either. If you can't see a difference, fine and well, but don't try to drag down the rest of us who can.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm often not honest with myself when contemplating new camera purchases. My heart wants the highest possible resolution but my head tells me that I rarely email or post online images that are larger than 1,200 pixels across and that I only need to print 8x10's or at most 12x18 on rare occassions.

1200 across isn't the recipe for photographic wonderfulness these days.  At that size, there would indeed be enough throwing out of data to bring any camera to its knees. 1920 is too small as well. 4K monitors are right around the corner.  That will show the differences even more than 2180p already does.

IMO, the argument that more resolution offers more cropping is weak. Why not invest in some better telephoto lenses if you are that serious about IQ? Or why not learn to compose better in-camera so you don't have crop afterwards?

Next better is the 80-400VR @ $2700 or the 500VR is the main reason.  Pixels are cheap!
