The retina MacBook Pro will be faster due to the SSD. Though if you were to configure the the iMac to have the 768GB SSD, it'd be faster than the retina MacBook Pro. Honestly, if you are only considering those two, I'd go with the iMac, but really, I'm not a fan of either option due to how disposable Apple has made both machines. I'd much rather something that has a fighting chance at having the drive reasonably upgraded.
