Can a camera lose its ability to focus?

While I've always had excellent results, recently, I noticed that my 5D's focusing doesn't seem to be as spot on as it used to be. Using a center-only focus point, I can focus on a person and it will front or back-focus.

Not having dropped the camera or beaten it (or yelled at it too harshly), I'm wondering if this is something that just 'happens' sometimes.

Has this happened to anyone else? Did you send it back for 'adjustment' ? Did it cost an arm and a leg?
