Hi All!
Have heard a lot of talk about micro adjusting lenses and how sometimes your lens and camera aren't calibrated together and need to be sent in to be calibrated or micro adjusted. I was just wondering if Canon tests their lenses with their bodies they ship out in kits to make sure they're a good match or do they just grab one of each, put them in a box and send them off? Just curious! :)

No, they just pack them together.  Items are not tested at all, much less together - either would be prohibitively expensive in terms of labor.

Thought as much! Would cost a bunch to hire that much quality control! Thanks very much neuro! :)

This post triggered another question: what is happening if the lens in the kit has an issue ?
Do you have to send back the entire kit to the store (B&H for example) or just the defective lens?
