I just looked through all the India samples just now, and I have to
admit, I do get a slightly sick feeling seeing them.

You should. Otherwise you are not human.

Here I am, a serious amatuer, very happy I have purchased a $3300
camera, and I'm hit the face with the abject poverty illustrated in
that series. I feel guilty.

Yes, I understand this too.

Look of the title of the thread. Emphasis on "5D" and "best."
Perhaps he should have said "worst."

He was describing the technical performance of the camera, not the subject matter.

I guess PJ's risk falling into the same habit. "Hey, I got an
excellent pic of that guy setting himself on fire!"

I doubt this. A professional photojournalist does not have this kind of attitude. For example, do you think a PJ will go into a war zone risking his life just to obtain an excellent pic of someone being killed?

We all know why we're here, to learn and discuss photography, and,
in thread specifically, to see what the 5D is capable of. But
perhaps we should get in the habit of intorducing these threads in
a slightly more serious, reverant way.

Perhaps you're right.

Also, a link to a site that one could take action against poverty
and hunger might be a good idea.

Agreed.
