Well when you find it, let me know. Perhaps noise in darker aspects of an image could be inroduced, but I haven't found this.

The fact is Nikon has set their contrast and sharpening settings lower than Canon for years... I seem to recall a review or two saying this very thing way back when the D80/D200 cycle were released. Nikon seemed to assume more deliberate PP by the user. JPEGs straight from the camera were softer than competitors...

I'm saying this from actually using the D7000. The factory level of sharpening can easily be raised (at least to 6), with no downside...

I never liked KR's review of Sigma lenses because I thought they were skewed. I also disagree with his tendency to only shoot JPEG's. But his DSLR guides are free and cut right to the chase. His experience of the D7000 matches what I'm seeing to a 't'.
