The D7100 has an extra 1.3x crop (x1.5 = 2x) that produces a 15MP RAW and for which the 51AF points cover the whole frame (the AF system uses the same algorithms as the D4's system).

It shoots at 7fps in that mode as well (6fps in APS-C mode).

They have not adopt the crop. It is just to speed up the FPS.

Yea, a cheap way to increase FPS without increasing buffer size.  Panasonic could do the same and offer EX-Tele in RAW.
