Is your lens in AF or M mode? If it's not auto focusing then that may be the reason. Is the whole picture out of focus or is an obscure focus point (left, right, top, bottom) rather than the centre point.

nikboy,

Is the diopter on your camera set properly? The adjustment is the little wheel right on the top corner of the viewfinder. The way to tell is to look at the information display at the bottom. If that is blurry, then an incorrectly set diopter is the problem.

Otherwise, make sure the af/mf swith on the lens is set to af.

did you check your depth of field.. if you were shooting at an open aperature i.e. 2.8.. you will have a limited field of focus... try using aperature priority and setting a smaller aperature i.e. f/16...

Did you consider posting a picture or two so we could see the problem? For example, some "focus" problems turn out to be camera shake problems. Though this is less common at 17mm, it can still happen easily enough.
