Have you been watching the Olympics? I'm not as fanatical as some of my friends, but I have been recording the show on my iMac using an Elgato EyeTV and I have enjoyed watching many of the events. I have also been particularly impressed by how sharp the HD video looks on my computer screen using the EyeTV.
But a picture does not have to be razor sharp to be amazing. Exhibit A for this argument is the work of Dan Chung, a photojournalist for The Guardian, a British national daily newspaper. He has been taking pictures at the Olympics with his iPhone 4S using the $4.99 Snapseed app (Link: ). The iPhone 4S lacks an optical zoom, but he has gotten around that by holding his iPhone up to a pair of Canon binoculars. And the results have been amazing.
Note that for some of the pictures he is using other equipment with his iPhone 4S, such as the iPro Lens System by Schneider which can cost up to $299, depending upon which lenses you purchase. But other photographs were taken with the iPhone alone, with no extra equipment.

It just goes to show you that if you use an iPhone 4S, you already own the same equipment used by Olympic-caliber professional photographers.
