iPhone 5 Camera Rumored to Include Faster Lens and 8MP Sensor

Industry analysts love to analyze all that Apple does since it seems to get so many things right from a consumer perspective.  One thing that Apple definitely got right in the iPhone 4S was the camera, which is arguably the best integration of a camera in a phone to date.
