Just tried the same shot at f2.8 with Live View and the difference is astounding. What would be the reason for this?

As I understand it, the contrast detection method of AF in Live View uses the image on the sensor, while phase detection must rely on the proper calibration of all parts in the optical chain.

From everything I've read so far, it appears to me that at least some D7000 bodies left the factory not correctly calibrated. If you can reproduce the focus problem with another lens, I think a call to Nikon may be in order.
