Hey guys, my camera seems foggy through the viewfinder.. i cleand it several days ago and it looked crystal clear. i went to disneyland and got some nice shots of the parade and when i tried to take photos later in the day, it fogged up somehow. i tried another lens and it still looked foggy and blurry. any suggestions would help. thanks in advance!

If you took the camera from a cold environment to a warm one then water might condense on the cold glass and make everything look foggy. All you can do at that point is wait for the camera to reach a temperature above the dew point so the water will evaporate.

If your photos are clear and in focus, my bet is that it's the diopter adjustment
