St Petersburg, RU
          

The problem is he did not use the same settings he did for the d90. A common complaint at first with the D90 was softness compared to the prior cameras in default settings. Everyone quickly learned to increase PC sharpening and suddenly the bad camera turned into the class leader.
He admitted he only set it at 5 which is the default for standard so even setting it at 6 would have compensated for the AA filter better.
A person on DPR posted images set at 6 and they were beautiful, whereas those who used default settings were seeing soft images, just like we did with the D90 when it was introduced. Using RAW, which I do exclusively now, every D90 shot during import is automatically sharpened in my import profile in Light Room 3 to make it closer to the sharpness of the JPG images with the PC Standard set at 6 in the camera.

Another issue is conversion software just does not exist yet that is optimized for the D7000. Only the CD version of ViewNX even allows adjustment to sharpening, the download version does not. Without the correct profiles present in converters there is no telling what the renderings will turn out like.
It is interesting how the complaint of outer focus points are not as good at locking as the D700 but the middle cross points are, without mentioning that the "outer" points are really covering a greater portion of the frame than the D700 which clusters all tightly into the center area with none further out. He said when comparing the center columns, the D7000 did compare. So as to compare apples to apples, comparing the areas both cameras have in common makes more sense.
I would say the review is more flawed than useful.
