You are missing the point here - the photo of the Woodpecker was submitted to show the focus capacity of the D7000 in real life situation. In this case handheld with the 70-200 + TC 1.4. The photo was cropped at almost 60% and still the bird was in good focus and full of details. I know I can get it better, focus wise, if I had used a tripod - miror up - and external triger but I had no choice as the bird did not wait to pose.
So what I was showing is a super photo - that would not have been possible with a focus faulty camera. This photo is still hanging on my wall and has was published in a few local publications.
Like GFINLAYSON said in his post : the D7000 is quote: It's the most advanced DX body Nikon has ever produced and is capable of producing outstanding results in the right hands.
So for all those of you that are spending most of your time and efforts to photograph charts and brick walls and looking for the perfection at 100% magnification - maybe the moderators should begin a new forum - called for the chart/brick wall shooters.
In the meantime my D7000 will keep on giving me good photos of wildlife.
BTW when I did get my D3s I had a front focus problem with the 70-200 f2.8. I did my testing - and brought both the camera and lens to Nikon repair. The VR system of the lens was replaced - it was faulty.
