what should i do to avoid e18 error on a95

i didnt buy the cam yet, but when i buy, i want to use it properly, i guess e18 is some kind an error that accurs because of user mistake, i should know what i SHOULD NOT do to avoid that error.

and what should i do if it happens?

I'd say to be careful not to let sand, dirt or water get on the camera. The E18 error as I understand it is when the lens fails to retract, and that can be caused by dirt or water getting into the lens mechanism. I would suspect it could also be caused by jarring the camera, such as would happen if you dropped it.

I don't know of any way to repair the camera if you get the E18 error, other than return it to Canon for service. I have now owned a total of five Canon cameras and have never (yet) had an E18 error.
