Please help. I need some advice here. These cameras are new to me and I don't know my way around the features quite yet. Thanks.

Scott, I'm having a similar problem. At first I thought my back focus was out but that turned out to not be the case. I notice that it's not showing the problem on the viewfinder but in the sdi output and the recorded media on the p2 cards.
I've noticed that the problem usually clears up when I go up on the ND filters. I had a commencement shoot last weekend with a few 170s and a 370. It was in the morning so ND filter 2 was sufficient. As the ceremony went on and the sun started showing it self a little more the image starting getting fuzzy. I was TD and could see it on the monitors. I told the camera operator to switch the ND filter to 3 rather than 2 and it sharpened up. I mainly have the problem when I'm outside in the sun but it seems fine when I'm shooting concerts with nice lighting.
Here is some concert footage used with the 370
