My wife just reminded of a corollary to the test of the D7000 I have proposed.
America's Test Kitchen (TV show) wanted to help the viewers determine if the viewers oven operated correctly. Correct temperature is important to baking.
They developed a test. The test was to set the oven to 350 degrees, wait 15 minutes for the oven to stabilize, then put 4 slices of bread directly on the rack.
Remove the bread after exactly 90 seconds. The bread would be a perfect golden brown.
Redo the test at higher or lower temps, not varying the time, until the bread turns an exact color. This exercise is to determine the exact amount of offset that is required for the viewers oven at temperatures near 350.
(Note: I used this as an example from memory, do not test your oven, my numbers may be off!!)
This is the type of standardized test that I feel would be helpful for us novice D7000 users.
