Something wrong in my new D7000 sensor or processor?
I made a dng profile for my new D7000 for Lightroom 3.3 using Adobe's dng editor. I took picture about color checker A4 chart. Settigns were ISO100, f4,5, 1/40 sec using camera stand with flash light.
Everything goes correctly but then I zoomed the color checker chart picture and I was surprised: The pixels were quite different colored so brightness of the pizels vares very much. I made same procedure with my D40 and I didn't noticed same kind of effect.
Test pictures can be found at (pictures are saved in tiff format and if you want to zoom those you must first save those in your computer and then open it in some photoviewer to take closer look of pictures):
Is there really something wrong in my camera or is it just an imagination of mine?

I think others will have a more specific answer for you, but I just had a similar experience with Photoshop CS 5 Camera Raw. First I had to update Camera Raw so that it would actually open Raw files from the D7000, but after I did this, one of my files was completely blown out, while the NEF file in iphoto looked fine.
My guess is that it's not the camera, but Lightroom and CS5 aren't quite up to speed yet with the D7000 RAW files. Just a guess...

Could be wrong, but I believe only View NX2 and Capture NX2 will "properly" and fully decode and open NEF files.

The color crop is pretty small, so hard to tell. I don't see anything that would say you have a significant problem. Overall, the color chart seems a bit unerexposed - was the histogram appropriate? Also, the D7000 will show substantially more detail over the D40 with the higher resolution sensor which could account for pixel-to-pixel variance.
Are you pleased with your images in general?
