i took it out yesterday morning to the lake, i thought i was tired and couldnt quite get things right Smile but when i looked at the images on the pc i notice something was not right, and now when i think about it its been going on for a while, i had major problems focusing, ive looked back at some of my images and they are all off by just a bit, its just suddenly got worse... so its been a steady decline, i thought it was me just rushing the shot as usual, not getting the shot in the viewfinder right etc, but the viewfinder is off, all the images are down and to the left of where they should be...

Could it be dirty focus sensors or something like that.

it seems to focus ok at 18mm, but this was at 35mm and at 55mm its even worse? but the sensor definately not straight in the camera, its tilted forward and down on one side, it just will not go back into position?

ive put on the 70-300mm, and the same problem, at close range 70 mm it seems better than at full extension of 300mm ? and the same problem with the viewfinder, its out of center ? the camera hasnt been dropped before this all happened ?

I think if the sensor is off, whatever lens you use will have problems. The reason the wider end looks better is the greater inherent depth of field at shorter focal lengths is masking focus errors. Try shooting the old brick wall target at various focal lengths from a tripod. Then you can see where the image is in and out of focus and how offset it is.

Either way, it doesn't sound good.
