Whether or AF goes out of adjustment when a camera is dropped depends on how the shock of the impact is distributed through the camera and lens. I think the "mechanism", in terms of moving parts, is all in the lens, I could be wrong.
Part 1, The screws that hold the mount screw into the mirror box a metal one holds up much better!
Part 2,The mirror moves and if it's gets out of alinement at all getting sharp photos is out, AF won't work right. Same with the lens mount if the lens isn't in the right alinement it wont focus right.
