Some of you own the iPhone 5 by now. Some of you might have taken some photos with it.

Define 'good'. Compared to what?

The camera on my 4s is pretty good but I don't suppose that counts? But looking at the spec it seems similar. No idea with pictures, how to upload, anyone know?
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV (THX calibrated), Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad 4 & iPhone 4S.
Compared to my (non 'S') iPhone 4, compared to my old Sony Ericsson K750i, compared to lunking around an old Panasonic Lumix LX3 everywhere I go (just in case any casual/opportunity shots present themselves).
Plug your iPhone into a USB on your computer.
Go to 'Start' and 'My Computer'.
Double click on 'gels iPhone Portable device'.
Keep clicking on each resulting object until you get to 'File Folder' and double click on that.
Now you should see the .JPG image thumbnails. Deal with them in the same way you deal with any other photos. File them in 'My Photos' on your computer and open them up/manipulate them with whatever photo management or photo editing software you normally use.
Right I will take some pictures and give it a shot later. Cheers.
Lots of samples in this review. Is your Flickr account a PRO account? If so, you can search by camera make and model to find much more interesting samples.
Compared to your iPhone 4, the 5 should have noticeably better low ISO performance, and a fair amount more detail. Compared to the 4S, slightly better ISO thanks to pixel binning (lower resolution but higher ISO performance). Sweep Panorama on both is fantastic, and arguably better than on my Sony NEX. Seems to get less stitching errors.
Compared to your LX3, printing a 6x4 on a nice day you will struggle to tell the difference. Photos in poor light, or if you pixel peep will be obvious
Im weighing up the same decision as I have a 4 which I'm quite happy with, but the camera and super speediness does sway me.

Okay I've done it! That was seriously easy! Cheers Compared to my Sony Cybershot, these looked just as good if not better. Here goes:

Is that okay? Cheers.

It's really good. Significantly better sharpness and somewhat better colour than my iPhone 4. Also much faster.

Have had another photo come in from someone who didn't give me their forum name...
(if you're not banned)
I don't carry a P&S camera around with me (I have a Panasonic something-something) because tbh the results are just as disappointing as a camera phone for snapshots. I'd rather lug my SLR around with me, settle for mediocre cameraphone 'quality', or not take pictures at all.
