Nah, it would just slither off of the spaghetti noodles. It could be stuffed inside rigatoni, though.

Ooh, ooh! How about head cheese rigatoni? Mm MM.

After using my Hocir for a month, I no longer enjoy using my K5 or K7. I got the K7 when it first came out, then later got the K5. I used them for 4-5 years and was so used to them. I knew them upside down and rightside up. I could hit buttons and change settings without even looking at the camera. Now that I have used the Hocir for one month, I got used to it and cannot find my way around the outside of the K7/K5. I was looking through the viewfinder of the K5 and trying to focus (back button focus) and kept hitting the green button or something else. The display looks awkward when compared to the Hocir screen. Pulling the RAW files into LR, im left wondering where all of my megapixels are. My plan was to use the K3 as a primary camera and keep the K5 and K7 as a backup. But, I like carrying 2 bodies with me.

I think Hocir got me.

I don't know if I can go back.

I think I am done for.

I already want another Hocir so I don't have to use the button layout of the K5.

What has happened to me?

Please assist.

I more than happily pay the postage for you to send me both of the reject`s
Would keep me from succumbing to the call of the Hocir.

I've crossed the point of no return.

They're going to have to partially fund the next Hocir.

Purgatives...in liberal doses should set you right. You will probably forget about all three cameras.
