I made this as precise and scientific as I could, but I'd take this result with a grain of salt nonetheless. I set this card up so that it filled as much of the frame as possible with my Nikon 50mm 1.4G lens fitted to the D7000. Everything was as parallel and level as I could make it. I used an SB-600 flash mounted to the hot-shoe, with a subsidiary LED light to the right of the chart (which I think caused some lighting issues). The distance from the focal plane to the card itself was 0.625m (2'1"), measured by a laser. If anyone has any suggestions for improving the set-up, please let me know.

Here's the image itself:

If you want to see it full-size (about 7.7Mb), you can have a look at: "http://sventekoz.smugmug.com/Other/Scratch/Chart/1130182288_Yvokz-O" Just add a .jpg to the end. I had to remove it so that a massive image wouldn't display.

Overall, I was very happy with the focusing, sharpness, and dynamic range on display. If you look at the full-size image, it's possible to see all the gradations in the area on the bottom-left.
