What makes the D7100 different from the others - unless you're a D7000 owner clinging to illusions?

What was already addressed was the mistaken notion of being able to achieve significant improvement in IQ in all cases when the AA filter is removed.

Some cameras have a stronger AA filter to begin with so removing it has a more significant impact on IQ. Nikon on the other hand has used a very weak AA filter on the D5200 which lessens the difference between with and without the AA filter. That is one reason why the D7100 is different from the others.

The relationship between pixel density and the AA filter also plays a part in the ultimate IQ.  If you are going to make comparisons, at least keep one factor constant and don't compare two cameras with different sensor pixel densities and make sweeping generalizations about the effect of the AA filter.
