I'm not a fan of made-up testing. Go out and use it. Do whatever it was you bought the lens to do. See how it handles, look at the results. Don't go looking for defects that are not relevent.

HI!

I'm similar...

When I get a new zoom, I usually go out to my back yard, take a bunch of pictures of the fence (hand held.....gasp!) at various  focal lengths and distances, wide open, "chimp" the images, and then off to do some "real" shooting.

If I think I'm seeing a problem, then I might get out the tripod, use the live view, remote release, mirror lock up, etc. and "fine tune" the camera to the lens. But usually not.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to anyone else, I'm just fessing up to what has worked reasonably well for me.

This is probably what I should be doing....:
