I guess I'm left scratching my head over all the discussion about the D7000 and soft images. Last weekend I took this image of the flag on a windy day. While there is nothing outstanding about the image I did notice while processing that it is ultra sharp. It may be hard to appreciate at this size but at 1:1 (after being cropped by 33%) the stitching is clearly and sharply visible between the stripes. I used minimal capture sharpening and minimal processing. This image is anything but soft. So for those thinking about buying a D7K and are worried about it being soft, in my view there is simply nothing to fear.
