1. Yes … Most camera settings, including sharpening, are ignored when opening in Photoshop. You can apply sharpening in ACR when you open the file.
2. Low contrast can be challenging for any AF system. The D7000 should not have any more problems with low contrast scenes then the other two cameras.
3. The suggestion to not use Auto WB was stated in the context of a side by side comparison of the cameras. Each camera may calculate the WB slightly different and make it harder to compare image quality.
In normal use Auto WB works quite well on these bodies.
