D7000 more AF focus....focus...focus...focus

Ok...Had the D7000 a few months now. This is my 2nd body. Previously I had an N90. I have the 24-70 2.8 ad 70-200 2.8 Nikkor lenses. I was worried about so many out of focus images. I then did a test. Check the photo stream here:

My pictures in live view were extremely sharper than the ones done from the view finder. These are all using the 70-200 and a tripod. I kept changing the AF fine tune until I went all the way to -20. This setting gave me the best results through the view finder.

Along the way I also tried the Q mode and I have what looks like ghost images as if the lens or camera moved, but they were eon a tripod.

I also tried my 24-70 and I had to use -10 AF fine tune to achieve similar results. Is this normal to have to adjust this much?
