Looking at the D7100, Nikon decided to launch anyway.

Yes, but with a Toshiba sensor. The sony sensor is for the entry level.

That Sony sensor wasn't any better; neither was an option for Pentax.

But since 2011, Sony had time to work on a better version.

For sure; I mean that Nikon didn't want to wait for Sony 24 Mpix sensor to be improved and lauched the D7100 with sensor from another supplier.

Indeed, we're in agreement

I should clarify my post though, just in case: I'm not saying the D7100 is a bad camera, I think it's very good; just that Nikon (and not only them) moved to a higher pixel count before the technology was ready, with a slight decrease in image quality (mostly at high ISO).
