Would calibration help sharpen my photos?

I seem to get many more out-of-focus shots than I expect, and I wonder if having my camera and lens calibrated by Canon would help rectify this. But I also wonder if the many posts I've read about people who have had their gear calibrated multiple times before they're satisfied is really the result of overly picky photographers who are splitting hairs and/or compulsive about something which is really not the fault of their equipment. Goodness knows I'm no expert photographer and it's certainly possible that my soft photos are the result of my poor technique. How can I tell? If I do determine that there's something off-kilter then how do I go about having Canon fix the problem? Is this an expensive repair?

My camera is a Canon 450D/XSi and my lens is a Canon 24-105mm f/4L.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
