Yes, yes, I'm embarrassed to admit that I, too, have doubts about my D7000's focusing. And yes, I have thoroughly read the instruction manual (as well as having owned many other Nikon DSLRs).

So here's my question to add to the many others: Is it possible for one lens that focuses accurately on my other Nikons to not focus properly on the D7000? Specifically, my 16-85mm F/4-5.6 VR is unpredictable (sometimes the focused image is soft or slightly blurred) on the D7000, whereas it was always tact sharp on my D60 and D90. Additionally, all other lenses seem to focus properly on the D7000, but only the 16-85mm is sometimes sharp, sometimes not. And no, this is an operator-error/knucklehead issue.

Jumping ahead and assuming the D7000 and 16-85mm don't play nice together, can I correct the problem through the AF Fine-Tune function? I've read here that it's impossible to fine- tune a zoom because of it's multiple focal lengths. True?
