Hi,
Pretty new to Nikonians, so suspect this has been answered a zillion times.

On the D7000, using modified Picture controls, what effect does the Active D-Lighting have?
On the D90, I remember that it deselected the Contrast and Brightness.
However the D7000 does not seem to do that.
The few shots I have made using D-Lighting on, don't seem to have much effect on the highlight areas, (but does make difference in the shadows)

Better to use D-Light or lower the contrast and brightness in Pic control?
(Yep, I understand about post process controls)

It also seems to me that lowering the Brightness does reduce the noise levels at higher 800,1600 ISO, but again, I might just be getting old.
