Image quality has many aspects to be considered:
- resolution (pixels per mm)
- high ISO noise handling
- dynamic range
- Some folks might even toss in the auto-focus system.
Since you cannot separate the sensor from the body, features and programs do play a part, if even just a small one.

It is usually a compromise: as one goes up, another goes down.
For resolution only, the D7100 might be best (check the math).
Trading a little resolution for DR, the D800 might be best.
The D4 is king of the high-ISO while sacrificing much resolution to get it.

What your subjects are and under what circumstances you shoot them both play a part in how you judge all of this.
