I am not sure why the D7000 would struggle here, but I have no experience with the camera, other than some small in-shop tests. Anyway, I never have had any focus issues with the lenses I have, thy all work fine under any conditions.

The photo was taken at night and the subject was not illuminated by any street lamp, I could barely see her through my viewfinder (I purposely positioned my subject in the dark to avoid any light to contamine my scene. I illuminated her with a flash bounced from the building at the left but this is beyond the scope of the discussion)

My office at work has no windows, turned off all lights, just ambient light from the hallway. It was at least as dark as your shot. Focus locked every time, with the inexpensive kit lens.

You're shooting light objects with clearly defined edges. A dark skinned person in the dark is more demanding on the AF system.
