When to Send Lens to Pentax for Calibration?

Hello-

Does anyone ever send in a lens for calibration, just to be sure it's as accurate as it can be, without some otherwise obvious problem?

I'm thinking there may be subtle issues many of us wouldn't otherwise notice.

Is it generally a good idea to just send a lens in to be calibrated?

Thanks.

If you can't notice it, it's not a problem. Nothing is perfect except in the imaginary world of mathematics. If you think it's a problem, post a photo and you're bound to get helpful responses and suggestions. Sometimes lenses are crappy by design.
