"RE: D7000 vs D700 vs D3x"

It was sunny this morning but cold, so these are just practice images to test the test conditions, so to speak.   The handiest place for the license plate was about 150 feet away (50 paces).   In the real test I will be shooting indoors with an open deck door.   This will protect the camera and tripod from the wind, which has been and is predicted to be "active" here.   Today I did not open the door as it was just above 0 degrees F, so the shots are through glass.   All shots were with manual focus and there was no PhotoShop processing except for conversion to .jpg and the crops.

I left the D700 at ISO 800 because I have read that noise shows up appreciably more above that.   I used a MC-30 to fire the camera.   I left the D7000 at ISO 1600 because I was getting camera movement while finger-pressing the shutter release, so opted for a faster shutter speed.   The D7000 was shot with both live-view and normal - the best shot happened to be with normal, but that could have been a focusing issue.   For the actual tests my intent is to use the same ISO after getting any comments that come in for the following.

Should 1/2000th overcome the camera movement I see in finger-pressing the D7000's shutter release, or should I stick with 1/3200th for the tests?

Which is more likely to degrade image quality at these shutter speed and ISO pairings, noise or camera movement?

Would I be wise to place the D7000 on the heavy dining room table (with the lens propped up by a heavy book) or with the shutter speeds used is the tripod mounting okay?

Finally, are the practice shots beginning to zero in on the kind of resolution the cameras are capable of with this lens and the TC?

Thanks for any guidance you can give.
Jim
