checking of focus issues

I am getting ready to pull the trigger for a Tamron 70-200. Do you check lenses for front/back focus issues before shipping out?
Thanks. LK

All product is shipped as new is not opened and tested first. Please be aware that back focusing is a lens and body specific issue. The Tamron lens may work fine here on a K5 body for example and then when shipped to you may have the problem. Such issues are always fixed by having the affected body and lens calibrated simultaneously.
