I just purchased a Nikon 400mm f2.8 lens and it is slated to arrive soon.  Can anyone provide a thorough process to assure the lens is 100% functional and tack sharp.  The lens will be mated to a Nikon D3.  Thanks.

I would go out and start using it like you plan to always use it.  Then decide if you are happy with the results.
