Yes, initial feeling is a problem with the body. Will the camera take a photo?
Out of curiosity, what lens do you have mounted?

Do you have a lens attached?
If there is no lens attached, there is definitely something wrong with your camera.
If there is a lens attached, there is something wrong with either the lens or the camera.
Is the focus screen in place and not loose. Are you using a 3rd party APS-C lens. They will mount to your camera but they won't cover the 35mm/ FF image circle. The viewfinder WILL have vignetting (black area in all 4 corners). If you take a picture it will look like you shot through a pipe. Also the viewfinder will look this way too.
