Not that it is surprising, but it seems the cheerleading squad from the Cameralabs D7100 review mega-thread here:

were wrong about how the lack of an AA filter makes a useful difference.

According to dpr:

"In short, even if you were willing to put the best glass available on the D7100 and shoot at a wide aperture, you're not likely, even with a lot of effort, to leverage visible benefits of the OLPF removal. While this may be a bit of a disappointment for some, the very good news is that to date we've seen no practical downside to the filter's removal for still photography. It is essentially neutral with regard to image quality."

Those cheerleaders can now be added to my 'less credible' folder for future reference.

It's a natural progression that leads the way to subsequent aa less models.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
HooRoo!
