"Dropped camera....boooooo"

Hi all,

A sad day.

Yesterday, while playing in the house with the dogs, I managed to drop my camera from a chair to the tile floor (approx 2~3 feet) with 24-70/2f4 attached.

landed (watched the camera fall in slow motion!), on the back left edge, broke the protective screen cover, but that was all. The lens hood protected the lens from slamming on the tile. Glass looks fine. Camera looks fine.

Now.....it looks like my focus from the view finder has shifted. The right sensors now are not focusing correctly. I did many tests this morning, comparing the shot from the view finder and screen. All shots from live view are 100% tact sharp...the same shots from the viewfinder are out of focus....booo!

Time to call Nikon and schedule a service I guess...

Also, the same shot from the view finder and live view meters slightly differently...lets say f2.8@1/5 vs f2.8@1/8 etc...
