Can my eyepiece be out of focus (Not Diopter!)?

By the way; it doesn't matter what's out of place if you don't have intention to fix it by yourself, does it.

Whether or not I intend to try to fix it by myself entirely depends on what's out of place.

If the primary mirror isn't stopping in the correct position, then it affects AF as well, since the secondary AF mirror is mounted on the back of the primary one.

If the focusing screen is misaligned it affects how AF is seen in the viewfinder (but not the picture itself) as well as how manual focus is perceived (which will affect the picture).
The focusing screen must be at exactly the same optical distance from the lens mount as the sensor is, or it will not truly represent the focus in the image.

It's possible for the primary mirror to not be mounted correctly on the frame, which could leave AF working normally.

UPDATE:

I just got my camera back from CPS - It was repaired and the viewfinder is now working correctly. Here's what they said:

"Your product has been examined and it was found that the viewfinder assembly was out of position the manual focus was misaligned. Adjustments were carried out on the viewfinder assembly. Product functions were confirmed. Adjusted exposure & ffd. focus basic & Shutter Speed. Cleaned C-mos and Checked all to factory specs."

I'm glad it's finally working. Unfortunately now I have to MFA all of my lenses again (sigh).

Why would you need to redo your MFA? The secondary reflex mirror, that deflects the light to the AF sensor, is mounted at the rear of the reflex mirror. Neither are changed in an adjustment of the viewfinder as described by CPS.

Because Canon resets everything when they service your camera. All the previous MFA's are reset to zero.
