In day to day shooting, the D7100 and D7000 and D5200 perform basically the same.  Noise is very similiar, the D7000 might have a bit of advantage at 100% at higher ISOs. Resolution wise, the AA filter appears to make no difference, echoing what DPR has said.

You wrote: "The removal of the AA filter is essentially a marketing feature".  Sorry this is wrong.

First of all, it has been proven by Lensrentals and others that the D800E is the highest resolving DSLR in existence.

And you can see clearly in the DPR Studio Test that the lack of an AA filter DOES make a difference (See Link Below).

DPR Studio Test (Perhaps DPR doesn't bother looking at their own tests)

IMO, it is pretty sloppy to extrapolate the results of the D800E to the D7100. They are completely different cameras and sensors with different image processing algorithms. Unless both sensors have at least the same pixel density and noise characteristics, it is foolish to even begin to compare them for the purpose of discussing the AA filter.

If we want to nit pick, I'm sure removing the AA filter on the D7100 makes a difference. But it appears to make no PRACTICAL difference. It's like two race cars arriving at the finish line at similar times differing only by an inch at 200 mph. Sure, one is absolutely faster but the difference is negligible in the practical sense.
