I got a SP and I can take good quality of photos. I haven't tried the V's camera though I tried using Z with also a 13mp camera same with V and I can say that SP can still take good photos. You will also love the performance of Xperia SP, it is like Sony putted some high-end stuffs to their mid range phone.
Xperia SP camera is very poor. so i got the Xperia V very good camera.
