I have taken over 27K sharp pictures with my D7000, but lately it has been slow to focus--if it focuses properly at all. Pictures are coming out clearly out of focus. They're sharp enough to pass the "chimp" test on the camera's monitor in that they would appear to be sharp (although I didn't zoom in on them to inspect them), but when I put them on my computer for processing, then its clear just how out of focus they are.

Question: someone suggested to me that I clean the contacts on my camera body. I suppose the theory is that over time these electronic leads get dirty and interfere with the camera to lens communications. How do I clean these leads?

Any other suggestions other than the electrical leads needing cleaning?

It's late, I am going to bed, so I don't feel like finding samples at the moment. I will do so tomorrow if necessary.
