A simple way to test it is to put a piece of whoite paper against a dark background, SM it and check histogram. Consistently I get the peak at 1/3 to 2/3 above cental line, with the D80 I get exactly centered.

You're referring to the in-camera histogram? If so, it likely means the D7000's tone curve is lifting the mid-tones more as compared to the D80's tone curve.
