D800 defective? Viewfinder focus plane tilted

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?
