I'm having similar issues. I've noticed that the AF of the view finder will slightly backfocus, while the live view will consistently provide accurate and sharp focus. In all pictures, I was focusing on the middle "K" in "KIRKLAND". I acknowledge that the exact same exposure settings were not used on both...I can reproduce the pictures if this is an issue.

Here are images for comparision + zoomed in crops:

CROP-VF.jpg = Cropped View Finder
DSC_1191 = Full View Finder

CROP-LV.jpg = Cropped Live View
DSC_1192 = Full Live View

If I'm not zooming completely in, this is hardly noticeable, and perhaps I am making a big deal out of this. But if this is something that can be fixed, or that could be corrected by Nikon if I sent in my lens/camera, I'd appreciate knowing. Too bad the D3200 doesn't have any AF microadjustment options.
