I know all 3 of the D7000 I have tried are backfocusing.....Focusing a picture with Live View is always sharper than using the viewfinder..... I have focused on charts and have taken plenty of pictures outside and I always get the same results...... Both focus systems should produce equally sharp photos and if the camera does not there is a problem..........I believe there are many more D7000 cameras that have this problem and the reason other people are not complaining is because most of them have not tested their cameras with a chart or they have not compared the sharpness of both focus systems.
