I'm always surprised how slow folks are to test their equipment. I test each new lens and body within the first day. It only takes a few minutes to confirm focus or determine if the lens or camera is out of spec. Glad you finally decided to check. Here is a good tutorial...hope your didn't check in dim light that can be problematic regardless of lens or body make/model. Good Luck

Mako, this is a pretty good tutorial but there's (at least) one thing I don't understand about the process: you can do this for multiple lenses, correct? So, what if your first lens needs +10 and then your second lens is at -6, wouldn't that screw up your first lens? Or is the tuning done "in the lens" so to speak?e.

The lenses are identified by the built in lens identifiers so the body will apply a different setting to each (assuming you set one and have AF fine tune turned on). In the D7000 you can have 12 unique lens settings stored in camera and one global setting that will be applied to all non-cpu lenses. The camera knows what lens is on it.
