    cannot focus

    Hello....I have a k10d, it is about 2 years old now, and just this past weekend, I pulled it out and could not focus manually...I mean, I could not get the image in focus through the view finder. When I use auto-focus, same thing, I cannot see my subject in focus through the viewfinder...however, the picture comes out fine. I thought it might be my lens, but I tried my other one, and same thing. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what the heck is going on?

    As far as I can tell it hasn't been banged around...I take pretty darn good care of it, and I know for sure that nothing happened between the time it last worked and when the problem started. Convenient that my manufacture warranty is expired. This is a big problem for me as I prefer to manually focus.....any thoughts are appreciated.

    Does the k10d have a viewfinder diopter control. Each person needs to adjust it for their eye.
    Maybe it got moved somehow.

    It was the only thing I could think of that would make them look out of focus in the viewfinder but the shots are in focus. I may need to adjust mine cuz I sure can't do manual focus.
