As well they should, given the price and the fact that it is solely an image gathering device.
I wish I had a 5D MKII. :)
No doubt the 5D MkII is better, but even if you own one, how often do you have that with you and ready to go? I have a Nikon D700 which takes amazing photos but the fact is I only have it with me when I plan to take it for a specific reason. The 4S is the first phone camera that I feel is good enough to really take serious pictures and videos with that I want to keep and display.

Comparing it with SLR video is kind of silly, I mean it's just not going to beat a Canon 5D MkII or whatever with a sensor like 100x larger and much more expensive glass. But...it is VERY impressive for a phone camera, by far the best I've seen yet. In the video where the guy is going outdoors to indoors and shooting through the window, I'm very impressed by how well the camera handles the contrast. There's none of that jumpy iris trying to find the right exposure, it's very smooth, and the image stabilization seems to work.

I can already tell my point and shoot camera will not be used once the 4S arrives at my door.

Wow.. thanks to MacRumors for linking to my Canon 500D/T1i comparison video.

To answer a few questions... the Canon video was shot using the standard 18-55mm kit lens, and it's outside a Tube station in London.

In fairness, you can get video out of that camera that looks a lot better. I created it as a quick comparison for a website feature and the whole point was to take video 'like a normal person would' - ie stick the kit lens on a DSLR and hit record in movie mode.

The video comparison was just part of a whole camera comparison I was doing yesterday morning so I won't pretend it was scientific or thorough!
