Just to throw in... I only have 3rd party glass. Most of which is better than what Nikon offers in the given focal length/range, and all of which performs beautifully on the D7000.

I'm talking about the: Sigma 8-16mm; Sigma 50/1.4; Sigma 150/2.8; and the Tamron 17-50/2.8. If money was no object, apart from the Tamron, there isn't a Nikon variant of what I have that I'd actually want.

At 100% mag on your computer monitor, the D7000 is very revealing. But even here, I think most "issues" aren't glass related, but operator induced.

But to reiterate, 100% mag of a 16mp image on a PC monitor represents a print of enormous size. A size most people will NEVER print.
