I have a Field Executive Case, in Orange (and FDE, and Black). Since I was doing a little winter cleaning, I figured I'd take a few pictures and do a comparison.
First, the important info:
Black 16GB iPhone 4
Stock Camera application
Orange Magpul Field Executive Case
CZ-40B in .40 S&W
1. So, the first shot is the control shot. This is taken with no case, no flash, relatively close.
2. Next shot is still with no case, this time with the flash, at roughly the same distance.
3. This time the phone has the Orange Field Exec case on it, with no flash, roughly the same distance.
4. With case, with flash, roughly the same distance.
5. Next shot is with the case, with no flash, at an increased distance. The darker area in the lower right hand corner of the shot is a shadow, not anything to do with the camera or case.
6. The final shot is with the case, with flash, at the same increased distance as the previous picture. There's a noticeable orange hue to the picture.

Potential Workaround for Flash Issues with 4s
This is potential workaround for the flash issue. It won't appeal to everyone, but it certainly helps *a lot* and I am very happy with the results.
What I did was take a black marker and color in the inside of the flash cutout, as so:
I don't mind how this looks, but I am sure some people might.
Here are the comparison pics:
Pink case, with flash, before coloring in the cutout:

My phone, using flash, no case:
There is a slight amount of difference between the last two pics. The one with the case on is *slightly* more washed out, but it's good enough for me. I am very pleased with this. Very simple fix.
The results are the same on the orange field case that my husband has, too.

I have noticed that if you take the case on and off a lot (I do, I'm really anal about keeping everything clean) that it does stretch out a bit. Not so bad that it falls off the phone, but you can ever so slightly see that it is not as snug as it was originally.
Again I'm super anal, its not that bad, but it does stretch a bit.

Do any of you guys use a dock with either the field or exec case? I just got a speaker dock for xmas, and my speck candy shell doesn't work on it or my iHome. That's a major selling point for the next case I'm gonna buy, so any input would be great

As previously stated by Heifzilla, a little sharpie magic on the camera ring will eliminate a lot of the flash issues, not just with the Magpul but with the majority of cases available. I have had to do this on a few cases and it usually resolves the issue. For what the Magpul costs it is a no brainer to get one or two of them. I have purchased a bunch for gifts for friends who have commented on liking mine.

Awesome post OP, Glock, iPhone and Magpul. My friday is made perfect. FYI, I had the field executive case but switched to the Oakley O-Matter case. It's got the slats in the back and sides so it looks like a ladder rail cover for my AR's and with a carbon fiber skin to protect the glass it's sexy. No pics yet yet sorry.

Gonna order my fiancé and myself one. If you guys want to use cases and docks then I suggest you pick up a Sendstation dock extender, best $30 I've spent yet on iPhone accessories!

Edit..... Case came today. And its by far the best case Ive used. And the fact that its also the cheapest, makes it even better. Slimline, simple, awesome material, great price. I will definitely be buying another color soon.

Got my Magpul Exec Field case today. I can tell I won't be using any other case for a while. Awesome case for the price. The only problems I had were the little nodes under the volume rocker and around the power button. Nothing a little knife trimming couldn't fix. Highly recommended.
