how worthwhile is fine tuning?

Alright, realistically speaking:

How worthwhile is fine tuning?  How often do you use it if you have a model that does it vs. a model that doesn't?  How much money, realistically speaking, does it save?  Is it worth purchasing a camera model if you use OLD LENSES?

I received some advice that said it really wasn't all that useful at al and that many people spend more time fiddling with this than it is worth and that is was more useful to just send a lens in to have it fixed if needed--but that lenses shouldn't need fixing all that often as long as your AF system and the lens is working properlyl.  I'm just looking for some opinions on how often people actually use this feature, how useful it is, etc., etc.

Thanks!
