Not so sure. The 7100 sensor looks great but Canon seems to be concentrating on lenses. On the other hand Nikon does not have a lens that can make the D800 resolve more than the D600 (according to DXO).

This is just way off.  The $119 50D outresolves the D800e without even breaking a sweat, let alone any of the gold ring stuff.  So does the 24-85VR "kit lens" center to mid. We'd need at least 50MP for that not to be the case.  The D800e smokes the D600 for ultimate detail.  You don't give away 12MP and no AA filter and come out ahead, sorry. Some people say the D7100 is more detailed than the D600, and I can't argue too hard, the D7100 is that good:

If that is credible it is unlikely that the D7100 will render any resolution over the 7000. I don't think Canon are that worried.

Well, that's nicely written, but completely incorrect. That ship sailed a couple of months back when the D5200 showed higher res easily than the D7000 using the cheapo 351.8, as did the D7100 a few months after that.  If performance equals better sales then Canon should be plenty worried with their old sensor, because they've got nothing that can touch the D7100.  Or the D800.
