Is the MBPr webcam keeping up the comparison with the Iphone 5 camera?

If not the rear camera, then at least the front one? And why not bringing the Iphone camera quality to the macbookpro, it would be pretty cool.

Obviously not the back camera. And I doubt the FaceTime, and why should it? It's just a videoconferencing camera. It wouldn't need to be higher resolution than the screen on which it's projecting.

As far as I know, facetime is also for videoconference. So at least it should be at the same level as the iphone facetime camera!

And although it doesn't need a higher resolution than the screen on which it is projecting (it would already be a quite high resolution on the rMBP), there is much room to improve: make the camera less laggy for example, more fluid, idk, just make the image quality better. Don't you think its would be so much more enjoyable to videocall with your kids and get a video quality as good as good as what is displayed on mac advertisement?

Yes.

They should match the quality of the video to iOS devices but it's probably not a high priority item for them as there are alternative options for people who want better quality:

If it ended up adding $50 for everyone and only benefits say 10% of the users, it's not really worth doing. Unlike with a communications device, it's not really an important feature for a laptop.
