I would check your focus with live view to determine if it's lens or camera body. Live view and viewfinder use different systems for autofocus, Canon has had a huge problem with viewfinder autofocus consistency with the 7D and now the 70D.

 

Good luck, I'm wrestling with the save viewfinder autofocus incosistency on my 70D.

I also think it is camera motion or shake.  As nothing seems in focus. With a 50mm lens at f4.5 one would think something would be in focus.  I am not a fan of ths Canon lens.  I have never been but lots of folks are and they like it.

I agree the lens may be faulty and you must confirm it is OK

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

If it's tack sharp in live view and not in viewfinder thens it's not the lens.
