    The short answer is, no. It is not possible to lose focus calibration due to shipping (if packed well).

    More likely for a body to lose calibration than a lens
    I've not personally had it happen in either case, and I've used something like 10 bodies and 20 lenses over the last decade.

    Just use lots of bubble wrap like everyone else and you should be fine.

    LOL! I was going to say... Typically, if you pack the lens well you'll have no problem. Except for one.
