Re: NEVER send lens with a body for calibration...

Sent in both my D4 and D800 with two 50s, a 70-200, 24-70, and 85. Autofocus is now absolutely pristine! Yay Nikon!

Just sayin...

You were lucky!

The lenses should never be matched to a particular body as obvious in the OP.

A good Nikon tech calibrates everything separately to a golden standard.

I have 4 Nikon bodies and 16 Nikon lenses and with all lenses AF Fintune is +/- 5 on any body at the most.  I have sent in a few lenses for calibration and one body, but never together.
