My D200 handled an in-camera boost in sharpening and contrast quite well. And, to my eyes, needed both to really shine. Nikon tends to leave these values very conservatively set on some of their models.

My own experience with the D7000 is the sharpening can be set at 6, perhaps 7, but definitely 6, which snaps things right up, without any detectable issues being introduced.

Even in Post-processing, whether needed or not, the D7000 RAW images are able to handle a lot more tweaking than my D200 RAW files could.

As has been discussed elsewhere, with the increased pixel density, when viewing at 100%, a 16mp sensor will reveal issues (slight movement, lack of tack sharpness) that may have gone unnoticed before. But keep in mind that, unless they're glaring, many of these issues may likely be invisible in a 12x18 print.
