Money.

The higher the resoluton, the more reach, the smaller and cheaper the camera for the same reach.

D7100 with 70-200 F4 today can produce the resolution of D3X with 300 F4 a few years ago at a fraction of the price (assumming lighting is non-issue). sensor resolution improves year on year for free, but lens resolution improvement is hard and expensive, that is why people get "turned on" if there is a sharp lens, especially if it is cheap, like sigma 35 F1.4 or Nikon 50 F1.8G or Canon 70-200 F2.8 II.
