Your over exposing. Post the EXIF information from the photograph, that will help a lot. I'm sure your histogram is heavy on the right. Cars as a rule are difficult to shoot due to the reflection. Dark colors red included can cause the camera meter to over/under expose. Not sure if your camera will let you, set the exposure on something neutral in the same light as your subject. As an example, set the exposure on the grass or trees around your truck. The camera metered off the dark truck and blew everything else out. Meter off something neutral in the same light and you give the camera a chance to keep everything within reason exposed properly.
The reason the the top picture looks so good, overcast day, no shadows, grey car with grey background, the camera meter will have a orgasm with those conditions.
Stop by the book store and flip through "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. If you like what you see and it looks helpful pick it up.

That's what it's supposed to do. When you get closer to focus it will go off and when you get really close it will go on and off pending your adjustment and movement away from or towards the subject. When it stays solid the focus is perfect according to the camera.

Do u have other lenses? Try other lenses. I'm at work right now so it's hard to give detailed advice but a lens can become unsymchronizes overtime if it's knocked hard enough. Try a different lens. Shoot the same subject in the EXACT (same speed, f-stop, iso, distance, metering Mode, and focal point) then compare. If all else fails do what real men do...shoot canon. Lol

Yeah i have a D80 and that diopter will throw everything off if u do manual focus and its not set correctly. I would start there and than snap a few photos and see how they look. Also if u have too small of a depth of field like on the 50mm it will make half the subject blurry.

RE: Blinking Circle

Every lens has a minimum focusing distance, it's the minimum amount of space that must be present btw u and the subject in order for it to take an in-focus shot. On Canons (And I'd assume Nikons too) the solid circle means your fully focused. The flashing circle means your too close and the minimum focusing distance hasn't been achieved.

is it just with the new lens or does it do it now with all of your lenses? Could be bad AF in the lens housing...but I don't know too much about the lenses themselves...oh...and I have an old ass Canon rebel. lol

looks like its getting better... I use manual focus because the auto focus is too finicky... give that a try

use your own eye to gauge the focus the auto focus is good if you are using the pre determined canned settings... once you start screwing with the settings auto focus get finicky

Check your camera manual to see if you have mirror lockup. The mirror can be swung up separately from when the exposure is made. This prevents mirror vibrations which may blur the image during close-ups or when a super telephoto lens is used.

they all look correct but the macro lens one. But also macro is usually used for very close up shots so the distance might be messing up the AF. All the other ones looked fine.
