Hello, I just sold my D90 for a D7000 as I was extremely excited about autofocus video amongst other things. I also broke down and got the new 18-200 VRII with the camera. I love the camera itself, but when I went to test out the video, I became extremely disheartened. The manual recommends full-time autofocus (wide) while in live view for video. I tried this. Autofocus works intermittently at best, and when it does work, it hunts back and forth a few times before settling on focus. Sometimes it settles out of focus. Regardless, the focus noise (audio) in the video is absolutely terrible. Thinking it was the lens, I switched lenses to my 12-24. It seems a little better, but then again I was not forcing it to focus at such extremes with this lens. What's the deal? Is it a problem with the camera or mine specifically? I know all of you hardcore video guys are going to be like "learn to manual focus, etc..." but that is not the point. I was hoping that I could replace this as the family camcorder as well with a little rig. I'm not going to expect everyone in my family to learn how to pull focus with a follow focus rig when a little $50 camcorder does a better job at focusing than my new D7000. I am extremely disappointed. Nikon should have put out a warning or something. I guess I should have tested it in the store, but I never expected such poor quality from Nikon. The noise when the 18-200 VRII is autofocusing is something like a quiet machine gun burst if that gives you an idea of what I am talking about. I will post a video if it would help.
