It's not the megapixels that matter, it's the quality of the lens and the quality of the CCD/CMOS.

If it's a feature you have to have then it will affect some sales. But whenever I see people put their best photos online they're always taken with an SLR or decent compact.

Also, lack of camera is good for business, many business phones lack camera.

It would, but then you have to ask yourself what is behind the hole. There may not be space.

All of my phones have had such dire cameras I have no interest in using them.

I'd sooner see support for Wifi/USB connections to proper cameras.
