D600 viewfinder focus vs. live view focus.
May 1, 2014

I've been having a really annoying problem with my camera.

Whenever I use the viewfinder to focus, the picture comes out soft and out of focus, every time, every picture.  When I use liveview to focus the exact same picture, the picture comes out tack sharp.  I sent it to Nikon for repair with an explanation of what's happening.  I just received it back from warranty work today and the problem persists!

I'm not sure what to search to find out what the problem is so I thought I'd post this thread in case anyone has seen a similar problem and subsequent solution.

Why would the camera take blurry pictures when focusing with the viewfinder and sharp pictures when focusing with liveview?  This indicates to me that there is a problem with viewfinder focusing mechanism but Nikon didn't seem to pick it up.

Anybody know what the deal is?
