Regardless of resolution difference, what I've seen is that a mild fog is lifted with the removal of the filter.  The difference was clear on the D800.  Importantly, it looked like doing it resulted in stopping down the lens.  Almost like a layer of hazing spherical aberration was eliminated.  This has no impact on resolution, but it does result in "better" looking images.

Maybe you missed my disclaimer above: "And before anyone attempts to extrapolate these results into a general statement that removing AA filters make no difference, DON'T. We are only referring to the D7100."

Removing the AA filter can make a ton of difference in some cameras. It's just that the D7100 is not one of those.
