Your test shots confirm theory.

The diffraction effect is more visible on a per pixel on the higher density pixels, but this image is sharper on the image downsized to same image size. This is due to the reduction of the limitations by the sensor resolution for the lens (diffraction) +sensor system for the D7000. Compare to my earlier post:

By opening up the lens to f/8 you reduce diffraction and get a sharper image.
