"RE: Auto ISO"

As you can see, there are many "right" ways to get the shot, more than we had with film since that was fixed by the roll loaded.
The quality and notice-ability of noise is based on the colors, exposure level and ISO. With well exposed images, 6400 is sometimes acceptable for web display but when there is shadow detail making up a good portion of the frame, 1000 might be too high. I have found that if it is too dark to get proper exposure, shooting at low ISO, 100, preserves color and detail when boosted in post, than letting camera ISO to creep up too much.
So it all is a decision time for the human involved, some scenes, with a little experience, tell you when to let the ISO climb.
When using wide ISO Auto settings say, to 3200, I will normally use M mode and set the speed for the best option considering light and movement, and set the aperture for the DOF and let the AutoISO do its thing. I have ruined more than one outing however by moving to flash and forgetting AutoISO was on. Do a quick VF info display scan when moving to another shooting mode or adding flash.
As mentioned before, the real advance in the D7000 is not high ISO but low ISO with incredibly low read noise that makes files very flexible. Very few cameras can touch its low noise at 100ISO, 3 total, all from Niko 3x, D800 and D4
