try setting it to af-s, single point, focus priority.

most d7000 focus issues are user error with the camera at default settings.

read the manual and practice your technique.

Do me a favor, use your D7000 using the settings you just recommended to me, except change to AF-C. Focus using a 50mm 1.4 prime at 2.5f to 4f (doesn't matter) and take a picture of a stationary non moving object such as a teddy bear or something that is not flat (your hands or feet maybe?). You will notice that the focus is almost never correct. If all my Nikons had this problem I wouldn't complain, but this is only the case with my D7000. AF-C is definitely faulty in the D7000 or just my copy is bad.
