I see comments like "I checked the calibration of this lens and it's spot on"

Is lens calibration something an individual can do?

If so , how?

Micro Focus Adjustment is something that Canon intoduced to the xxD series with the 50D. So I'm afraid it's not possible with the 40D.

Actually only Canon can calibrate a lens on their lens bench and adjustments get written to a table in a chip in the lens. If you have a doubt about the Auto Focus on a lens, under warranty Canon will calibrate it once for free. Out of warranty you will likely pay for the service.

Micro Adjustment is only available in the 50D, 5D Mark II and the 1D series. Micro Adjustment is in the camera, not the lens, and will store adjustments for up to 20 lenses used on that camera.

If you are not having any particular doubts about your lenses autofocusing correctly, forget all about it and let people ramble on. :D
