dropped my camera

My EX1R fell about 4 feet onto the ground. It seems to work okay, but I'm wondering if it's possible that the alignment was knocked out of whack - perhaps causing a bit of blurriness?

Or maybe I'm looking at the image more critically than I did before - and imagining a less than perfect focus?

any thoughts?

Re: dropped my camera

Take it in to an authorized repair shop and have it checked out. It fell 4 feet. Hell I've fallen 4 feet and had to go to the doctor so why not take a delicate electronic instrument in to get a check up.
Just sayin'.
What do I know? I'm just a video-O-grafer.

Re: dropped my camera

I recently had a similar drop of only 2 1/2 feet, but it was onto carpet. Re-do a backfocus just in case. F1.9 is where you'll always see blurriness so I recommend trying to reach F2.8 to avoid that.
I wait for the day cost-efficient global shutter 60fps capable CMOS sensors emerge for use on major manufacturers' cameras. (Sony, Canon, etc.) Rolling Shutters are a plague.
