D800 owners, do you think the D7100 will give us higher resolution 'DX' images?

I love my D800. With my lenses, the longest focal length I can get is 600mm using my wonderful Nikon 300mm f2.8 VRII with the TC-20EIII. I believe that cropping the image or using the DX crop mode is equivalent and results in a 15+ megapixel image with an 'equivalent' 900mm focal length. But, if I instead used a D7100 DX camera with the same lens combination to capture the same subject area, I'd have a 24 megapixel area. I realize noise levels may be better with the D800 because the pixels are bigger but the D7100 also has the advantage of no anti aliasing filter. It almost seems like a no brainer to me that the 7100 will be better for telephoto shots at a relatively cheap price. What might I be missing in my simple analysis?

Thanks,
Larry
