learnt that all lenses have sample variations in the process of manufacture. How do you test a new lens that you are going to get to make sure you do not get a lemon? Basically only limited tests can be done at the shop! A few shots near the shop may not tell lots about the lens!

Shoot and see if you are happy with what you get. Most tests (resolution and so on) are useless. Just for information and to see BEFORE buy if the lens suits my needs. What is the point in doing a lot of selftest just to see that you got a lemon? You can not claim warranty unless it is a manufacturing error anyway.
