I agree...D7000 tends to backfocus...

D7000 definitely has a tendency to backfocus, particularly in artificial light, and it gets worse in low light. For example, my 35mm f/1.8 is spot on under moderate florescent lighting with my D3200, but backfocuses to about -14 on the D7000, however, in bright sunlight, the 35mm is spot on with the D7000.

If you aren't doing so, I would do all testing either under bright sunlight, or under good studio lighting with a color temperature of 3000K or above.

You may also want to repost this in the D7000 forum. Perhaps start a new thread. responding to a 5 month old thread in Pro DSLR/FF forum probably isn't going to get you many replies.
