focus problem

Using a k100d and noticed that the pics were as sharp as ever but no matter which lens or focus setting (M or L) the view finder pic is not sharp... I'm sure the problem has a simple solution but that is beyond me.... any suggestions??

Did you try adjusting the diopter?

Check the diopter adjustment. It's the little slider above the viewfinder. It might have gotten bumped out of focus
