just curious--did you try using your other eye, to see if there is still an issue with blurriness? it's not hard to create a problem by incorrect positioning of one's eye, or with some vision defects.
Update: I checked the D5100 on display at a local store. The numbers on the right hand side of the VF are a bit blurred, just as they were on my D5100 before it was repaired. The left hand side is sharp.
Again, I had the D5000 side by side with the D5100 for over two weeks and only the D5100 exhibited this blurriness on the RH side.
Does anyone else have both cameras?
