Dropped my D800 + 70-200 and now I'm paranoid.

Hi Guys.

I know there are a few threads about dropping cameras but I just have to ask as I'm paranoid about it.

My wife dropped my D800 & 70-200vr2 on to a stone floor from 5 ft up.

The camera has some damage on the base but nothing got broken that affects the camera controls.

The camera also seems to be functioning fine and I haven't noticed any problems although I have a black spec in the view finder that isn't on the sensor and I can blow it out.

So what I need to ask you all is it possible that the camera can still work fine after such a drop?

What about focusing etc?

Is there anything I can do to check its fine other than just use it.

Thanks for you time.
