D7000 The Merciless
Jan 17, 2011

I think these 100% crops at various apertures clearly demonstrate just how much the D7000 will show up any flaws/weaknesses in lens quality. At first, I thought it was our good old focus issue but, as you can see, the picture is perfectly focussed at f8 and I was using single point AF on exactly the same point on the PA Mixer. So this is nothing to do with focus, it's lens softness but one could easily mistake it as being OOF because it is extremely soft wide open, fine at f8, then gradually gets softer towards f22.

I never noticed such extremes when using the lens (a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8) on my D300.
