Agreed, I have the Sigma 50 and the 150, and the Tokina 11-16 and all 3 perform great on the d7k.

As you noted, pixel peeping at 100% is not generally relevant, even for cameras such as the d90 given not only the size of the print/image and the viewing distance. Few people view prints at the same distance you would look at an image on the computer (which would be much smaller).

I have to say, even pixel peeping on the d7k I have not been concerned. Any problems have been user error for me.
