Now having both cameras, I would say ISO800 with the D7000 is still in the 'don't worry about it' category. Perhaps equivalent to ISO250 or maybe ISO320 on the D200. Easily corrected with mild noise reduction.

DR and color hold up really well at the higher ISO's as well. Much better than the D200.

For what it's worth, I looked at my latest Lightroom3 ISO defaults between the cameras. Not a direct photo comparison, but here's the Luminance NR values I independently selected for each camera.

ISO D200 D7000
100 0 0
200 10 0
400 25 5
800 35 10
1600 45 25
3200 60(H1) 40
6400 45
12800(H1) 50
25600(H2) 60

From this example, I'm giving the D7000 a 2-stop advantage on noise.
