I sometimes wonder if using AF S rather than AF C has caused some of the focus issues on the d7000. It seems that once focussed ie half a press of the release button - its quite possible to lean forward or in some other way change your distance to the subject (particularly if its a close up) before fully pressing the button.  With a narrow depth of field this could cause the effect of back focus.

So yes - why not keep it set to AF C

No, that was not a main cause of "focus issues" with the D7K.  The same thing would apply to any camera.
