Sorry to hear that, Jim. Having fallen once with a D3 and 70-200/2.8 attached, I feel your pain -- literally and figuratively.

In my case, the camera didn't have any visible damage, but the lens sure did; its mount was visibly bent. Also, the shutter on the camera jammed. We managed to get that to unjam, and the camera seemed to work fine after, but the shutter failed after a few thousand more clicks. Probably that failure was related to the fall, but I'm not sure it's something Nikon would have detected initially.

By the time all was said and done, repairs totaled about $1000. And since my fall was caused by someone else's stupidity, I was pretty unhappy about it.
