This is normal and the same with every DSLR. There is an LCD screen between the focus screen and the prism. That LCD needs power to work, without power it will dim and diffuse the light going thru. So you can focus the image and it will be sharp on the focus screen in the mirror chamber, but you won't be able to see that sharp image since the dim LCD is in the path to the prism/viewfinder.
