I've literally just got my 6D about half an hour ago...had a few test shots around the house, and I've found that after about 20 or so shots, my viewfinder isn't focussing, although the shots are.

Any thoughts and help would be appreciated as I've never heard/seen this before!

+1, it is the little toothed wheel next to the viewfinder.

Thank God, Phil must be sleep.
EVERYONE! Makes SIMPLE MISTAKES at least once or twice. Believe me, I've had my share (Not too arrogant to admit it). So therefore I know how you feel.

I know how you feel with your new camera "You just want to play with it", and if you are anything like me, you probably hate reading (Puts me to sleep). But trust me take time out to read the manual or any other books about the 6D. Also check out video tutorials, and this forum of course. A good book in my opinion is the Digital field guide. Congrats! and good luck!

I can't mock when I've done the same thing. Of course now my viewfinder is blurry anyway and I have to wear my readers when I shoot.

Because none of us have ever done that and spent useful shooting time trying to figure out what happened, honest.
