Here's a scene I took a few images of... D7000, 9.5mm, f/5.6, 1/800th, hand-held.

Now, on this posted image, there's a 3" sign on the right-hand door that's easily readable at 100%. This image is VERY sharp. But the D7000 resolution cuts two ways...

While I'm super pleased with the posted image, I tossed a few of the exact same scene, shot at exactly the same settings, because at 100%, I could see effects of vertical motion blur, induced by me.

My reason for posting this is because I believe the increased resolution of the D7000 means that the standard rule of thumb relative to focal length/shutter speed doesn't always hold up. Normally 1/800th at 9.5 millimeters would easily be fine, and maybe when viewed at 50%, it still would have been. But, since we commonly use 100% viewing magnification, be prepared for sometimes seeing some imperfections (that may have always been there) but you might never have noticed.
