>to find out if their camera is making pics that are sharp.<
All a person has to do to find that out is look at their printed picture. My goodness, why would a test be needed to determine that? After all, isn't a picture worth a thousand words? Yes, there have been threads with questions regarding "softness" but in each and ever one of them critical information was given and with that information a process started whereas other people made valid suggestions. Most of the time answers were provide that cleared up the softness question. Your picture, or example, was not soft and, therefore, there was nothing to be critiqued.
>Back to the original topic, can a standardized test be developed to determine if a camera like the D7000 is producing sharp photographs?< I believe it would be called a printed picture but I don't believe that will satisfy you.
I truly believe all the people, who have taken their time and effort, have tried to understand and assist you but it has not been well received on your part.
>let the thread die.< Finally, your engineering prowess has surfaced.
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
