D800 defective? Viewfinder focus plane tilted
Jul 30, 2014

Today my D800 viewfinder looked strange, it was sharp on top, but not sharp at the bottom. It went away after taking a photo (which was 3 stops overexposed). This happened 4 times today. Maybe the mirror wasn't in the right position?

Should I send the camera for service?
