    you gotta use click insert images. for example [IMG] http://.......... [/IMG]

    the URL file name should end with .jpg
    your initial link was .jpg?v=0 which the server can't locate the file.

    There's no fix aperture lens. At least I have not come across. I think you meant PRIME lens, or fixed focal length lens. I can't really tell if your pic's grainny cos its kinda small. But Will a PRIME lens help with grain on your pic? I doubt so. If you want to reduce noise, bump down the ISO and use a tripod for nite shots. In addition, pick up post processing, like photoshop or other SW. Learning the basic photographic and post processing technique will help you achieve most if not all of your composition needs. Just passing on what i learned since I too am a newbie..but 2 years in.

    hi thanks for sharing maybe i put it in a wrong way ..... what i meant is constant aperture.

    "Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 21 February, 2006: Canon today strengthens its EF-S lens series with the Image Stabilized wide angle EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM. With image quality and construction approaching that of Canonís renowned professional lenses, the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM becomes the fastest standard focal length zoom for EFĖS mount cameras such as the new EOS 30D. Combining constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range with Canonís latest 3-stop Image Stabilizer, it delivers outstanding wide angle performance and framing flexibility in low light conditions. Specialist optics such as UD glass and aspherical elements help deliver exceptional clarity, sharpness, contrast and colour accuracy."

    I see. Yea..i guess its a constant aperture throughout the zoom range and thus constant aperture, instead of a varying aperture throughout the zoom range like the 17-85, f3.5-5.6. Anyways, regardless, my advise remains the same in that, for the kind of pic u posted, shooting at f2.8 would not be the desired setting. Therefore, a "constant aperture" lens will not help. Back to how to remove grain, use lower ISO setting or reduce the noise in post processing.
