Sharpen your shots in-camera...

You will want to bump up your sharpening in the picture control menu...default is only 3 and will leave you with soft images even with sharp lenses, perfect focus and adequate depth of field. A setting of 6 or even 7 for inanimate objects (not really recommended that high for people shots most of the time) will result in much sharper pictures. Try 6 and you will be much happier with the resulting images.

Congratulations on your new D7000! It is a great photographic tool. It does have a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of what works and what doesn't, you will be very pleased with your shots. Mine was tougher to master than my D700, but I am happy with what the D7000 is capable of...
