I have to use the on screen focus indicators to focus any MF lens on my D7000.

The 300mm f4.5 AIS is the only MF lens I have been able to focus with any degree of accuracy. The 35mm f1.4 AIS was pretty close to impossible to focus.

For more about why I like the 300mm f4.5 AIS, which is basically,

1> Inexpensive
2> Hard focus stop at infinity
3> Its 300mm and still relatively fast
