I hope that you've said the wrong model.

The right model is DSC-R1 with 24-120 Carl Zeiss' Japan.

Buy the Metz 54MZ with adapter for Minolta/Sony.

How do I switch off flash

On this model I think you need to go into the camera menu, navigate to the internal flash setting and disable the auto function. Sometimes these CSC are set to have the flash fire automatically if there is insufficient ambient light.

I bought an 18 megapixel d60, is there a new 20 megapixel d60 in the market,,if there is, do i need to buy a newer d60 just to increase its megapixel

There would be almost no noticeable difference between an 18 megapixel camera and a 20 megapixel camera. Personally, I would look for a camera with a fast shutter speed and a high Optical Zoom.

The Canon EOS D60 is a discontinued 6.3 megapixel digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera.

The Canon EOS 40D is a 10.1 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera.

The Canon EOS 1D Mark III is a 21.1 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera, and is the first to break the 20 megapixel barrier.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717 5.0 Megapixel

Hi Bella

That code means that the lens unit was unable to move from home position to switch on position.

These lens are extremely complex and I doubt if you could find someone able to repair the lens.

Therefore I suggest contacting Sony to find a accredited dealer to quote you on replacement of the lens.

My guess is it will cost half of what you originally paid for the camera.

Good luck.
