for example the infamous brick wall. Is it sharp left and right top and bottom -- of course needs to be a straight shot. Test both ends of the zoom range. Only worry if there are gross and obvious effects. If so, test another lens, question is the camera body bent too.

There are various posts on here that the D800 has a weakness when dropped such that the frame for the sensor can crack so the sensor itself is then out of alignment. It is not normally noticeable unless you pixel peep. As I said earlier my D800 seems to be fine
