Actually, it does have an impact on resolution of fine detail.  Here it is again for those who missed it the first time.  Same exact lens, lighting and still life.  This spread tallies perfectly with normal pics we've seen.

You can sharpen the D5200 'til you're blue in the face, but it can never look as sharp or as contrasty as the D7100. All you'll do is make a crunchy mess.   This scales up and is easily visible at zero on any decent monitor.

Now, don't get me wrong.  The D5200 is good in its own way.  It outresolves the D7000 with no trouble at all.  It's just a different, milder look than what we're used to.  To say there's no "practical difference" is just wrong.  It's as plain as the difference between any two similar cameras has ever bee, especially ones with the same sensor.  The D7100 brings back the slamming contrast of the D7000 with a good deal more refinement and adds a large dose of fine detail.
