dropped camera

My K7 got knocked off a table and onto a hardwood floor last night. The lens filter broke Everything else looks ok.. How do I see what else might have been damged, knocked out of alignment, etc.

Well just take pictures and when it works don't worry about until the day it stops taking pictures.

Do a focus test and see if it is still good.

Ouch! Don't do that! All you can do is test it and try do decide what (if anything) got damaged.

just a hopeful story: Years ago my K10D fell off a table, on stone pavement. Other than a smashed UV filter, no issues. Hope you're that lucky too...
