If you read my post where I included that pic, I stated that the pic was an EXAMPLE of why you could not evaluate just any pic.

Of course I knew what EXACTLY I was doing using that pic. I was trying to post a worst case example of focus comparison, not an example of in focus/out of focus, or AF lens performance.

P.S. I worked pretty hard with the camera to make that pic just what I wanted.

I have really enjoyed the results of using the D7000.
