"RE: D7000 review"

I read this and I am not sure what to call it, a review I suppose, but iI don't know how I would use this to determine the potential image quality of the D7000. I could take these pictures with a D3s if I didn't use proper technique/settings.

If we are going to test sharpness we need to eliminate user error and have controls. I would like to see the camera on a tripod and converted RAW shots at base ISO in decent lighting. Why handheld JPG samples in challenged lighting?

There is nothing in these shots that give me reason to believe that user error couldn't account for the 'reported problem'.

Incidentally, a number of users on other boards are reporting and posting beautifully sharp images shot in RAW and converted with the provided version of View NX2.

I agree with others here that have noted that a number of people reported the same 'mushy image' problem with the D90 when it came out. Turns out that Nikon simply had the default settings turned down to a very conservative level.

I would be shocked to find out that Nikon has waded into the MP pool with an inherently soft $1000+ camera, taking a 180 from their successful business model of producing sharp/noise busting DSLRs.
