That was probably a bit facetious. I appreciate the fact the OP seems to have a problem, which we've all tried to help with.
I just think that in general there seems to be a growing trend in pixel peeping at 100% enlargement and obsessive measurement of camera and lens performance to find fault in equipment that would otherwise never be apparent in real world photographic situations.
It perpetuates myth and rumour and claims of manufacturer 'conspiracy' and dissuades would-be purchases from buying a particular model.
I've no doubt there have been genuine issues with focusing which Nikon is usually happy to resolve by carrying out the necessary calibration adjustments, but they've been so overhyped and the flames have been fanned by the 'me too' claims to the point where the D7000 is (if the online community is to be believed) almost universally considered to be a lemon.
And a lemon it is not. It's the most advanced DX body Nikon has ever produced and is capable of producing outstanding results in the right hands.
As for KR, he writes a lot of stuff which he freely admits is based on his own opinion. Some of it is factually helpful, some of it is baloney. But love him or hate him, he's probably going to be around for a while......
