Okay looking at the back of the camera where the viewfinder eye piece is right side upper corner you will see a small wheel partially covered by the rubber rim of the viewfinder by the side of it you will see a small line with a + and - that is a diopter that actually tunes the camera viewfinder to your shooting eye. Pretty fancy eh? Anyway what I do is set the camera in auto focus and focus on an object in a brightly lit room and when the little green light come on in the lower right corner of the viewfinder which is the auto focus confirmation light start turning this wheel one way and another until the image you see come into sharp focus. I don't know about you but I need about three clicks to the + side before everything looks sharp.
The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus. If this is the problem it is an easy fix. You
will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next
to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an
object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse
or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with

Try adjusting the viewfinder diopter. There's a little dial just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder. You want to be looking at an unfocused view or a blank wall. Turn the dial until the focus brackets are sharp. Make sure you do this with your shooting eye.
Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.
I don't have my camera with me, so I may be off on the exact placement, and I hope I'm not telling you something you already know and the problem is worse, but on the left side of the viewfinder itself is a tiny dial that adjusts the focus. Just look the the viewfinder and play with the dial to adjust to your eyesight.
