this is especially true at longer ranges and when shooting between f1.4 and 2.8.

I have both D7000 and D7100, but irrespective of camera, I found that focus and re-composing at very wide apertures resulted in slightly softer images, especially if the subject was reasonably close.

So now, at wide apertures,  I always use one of the other focal areas, so that I donb't have to re-compose, and although this of course works better on the D7100, I would give it a try first with your D7000 and see if you notice any improvements

Cheers,

bernie- i know what you mean about having to be careful when you recompose. the misses i get are much larger (think yards not inches).  i suspect that one issue is the subject is just outside the focus assist light range.
