Based on input from the members of this forum I recently replaced a D70 with a D7000 and I'm quite happy. In working with the 18-70 lens from the D70 kit on the D7000 I found a need to fine tune the auto focus on that lens. Using the lens at about 45 mm, spot focus, a tripod, flash because of weather and the need to work inside, and trial and error it appears that a -5 correction was needed.

I never found a reason to be concerned with the D70 & this lens, but I guess the additional resolution of the D7000 brought out the problem. It took the better part of a week to narrow the problem down by eliminating a uv filter used for lens protection, noise and other pixel peeping concerns under 100% view in Nikon Capture NX2, lens shake blamed on an aging photographer, and a series of other concerns didn't make sense but seemed reasonable.

Is that correction likely to suffice throughout the zoom range and various appertures on the lens? If not, now what??
