You do not use the extra AF points of the D7100 because you stick to the center group of 15 cross type AF sensors, and possibly only the center 9 out of 15, which gives you an almost similar coverage compared to the 9 cross type array on a Df?

I shot 1300 shots of dance this weekend.  And while the clustering of focus points is different coming from d7x00, I only noticed a very slight increase in missed focus shots.  Would I rather have the d7100 focus and coverage?  Heck yes, but when I see less noise and more importantly no color shift at ISO 3200+ it's a trade off that is worth it.  Others mileage may vary.
