I look at it this way... my buddy got a Mustang GT a few years ago. I got the 2012 model and got the V6 that actually has more horsepower and better gas mileage than his. Yeah, it isn't a GT, but it has some advantages I can use.
Much better than the high-end vs. hatchback comparison.
If the D7100 has better resolution, higher pixel count for better cropping ability, significantly better video, equal or better autofocus, and better high-ISO performance, I can deal with the lack of fps (which I never used on the D300s), the smaller body that I can get used to, missing flash cord socket, several buttons and switches I never used, and the missing AF-On button, as long as I can map the existing AE-lock button to be AF-On.
Like the lack of the GT badge, some might look down their noses at my camera and say, "Hey, that's not professional model." My ego can take it.
