I use the Zoom In button on my D7000 too much, it is now suffering from fatique failure. Is there any other way to zoom in and inspect captured image? Will it be still covered by 2-Year Nikon Warranty?
I don't have a D7000, but my all my DSLRs except the D90 have a menu setting that allows the center button of the multi-selector to zoom to a preset level. It's in the Custom Setting Menu in the Controls group, f1 on my cameras

The tact switch is only $0.02-03 and a standard part in you want to change. Nikon will probably cover it even though it is apparently wear and tear and exempt from warranty coverage. They will replace the larger assembly and not just the switch which is a SMD type that requires a steady hand and the right soldering skills. Stan St Petersburg Russia
If you have a friend at a Nikon warranty station you can probably order one through them. Nikon will not sell internal parts to shops or individuals who are not part of their warranty service network.
My suggestion, if you are skilled with soldering, is to replace the switch on the flex printed circuit board since that you can get at almost any sell stocked electronics parts store. I have changed them on D80s and D90s. I have the service manual for a number of models and they all use the same sort of tact switch. Stan St Petersburg Russia
