Quick D800 AF check

Buying a D800 from my local camera shop, and was wondering if there was some quick test I could perform before taking the camera home to check for any of the AF issues.

Obviously I can just focus on a complex scene in the store using left, center and right focus points, and that will probably be good enough to get a feel, but curious if there is anything in particular I should "focus on" (haha!).

I am not trying to buy into the AF issue hype here, but I am obviously a bit concerned and would love to give it a go before bringing it home.

Thanks!
