Since you've not mentioned it I guess the rumoured "lag" isn't affecting you, and if you have no ghosting, then you've pretty much got a perfect rMBP. Check that the screen is uniform and not tinted, too.

Yes, you can adjust the screen settings to your needs. You can do so under System Preferences > Displays. If you don't know what you're doing, though, I don't recommend you mess with the colour settings.

Some people say that they've experienced the animations in OS X seeming slow, but it's not an issue for the majority and if you've not seen it on your machine then you don't need to worry about it.

Check that the brightness throughout the screen is equal, that certain parts aren't coloured slightly differently, and that you don't have any 'light bleed'. Chances are that if you don't notice the light bleed quickly, it's not there.
