Well, since the football pics seemed to create some exciting conversation, I thought I would share some more. I created another album "D7000 test pics" for you guys to do some pixel peeping. All the EXIF data should be there for you. Some notes: All pics are unedited. I either resized the full picture or made 100% crops. All were captured in Jpeg. (I also captured them in RAW, but I haven't gone through them yet). The roof top and flower pics were taken with LOW NR. The horses were at Normal NR. I think Low NR looks much sharper and the noise is still good. You'll noticed I took several shots of the same scene with different EV settings. I think stepping down -.3 to -.7 EV really represents the true ambient light. I also did a "shoot-off" between my D5k and D7k with the 18-105 lens.
