Okay, the lens arrived and went out earlier today for some testing. I haven't calibrated it yet, but from today's testing, it doesn't look like the lens is either front or back focusing so I don't think I need any calibration. This is shot 1/800th sec, f11, ISO 1000 and @600mm, cropped. What do you think?

Thanks. Went out for more test shots, and I'm very pleased so far.
