The only problem I have with at home tests is that most people haven't microadjusted their lenses with a calibrator. All lenses perform different on a different bodies (including the same lens on two different bodies - even if they are the same model body). A non-sharp lens on one body can be tack sharp on another - and this is very very common. Why don't people see it as much? 1 might not be looking but 2 the smaller the F/stop the greater the hyperfocal distance. So if you focus on something at F8 and your AF is off calibration with that lens you most likely wouldn't notice it. But the same picture at F2 you might.

I'm not sure what you are getting at here. With mirrorless cameras, focusing is done right off the sensor, so there is no need to calibrate lenses, as there is with DSLRs. This is true even with non-native lenses used with adapters. Did I miss your point somehow?
