In the US, once all of the states start charging sales tax online, you are going to see business coming back to local camera stores.

I disagree with that statement. I buy online because of price, availability and convenience. If I can't get the item I want at a brick and mortar store I will purchase the item online even if I have to pay sales tax. No camera stores in my area carry Olympus or Panasonic m4/3 items, so tax or no tax, I will have to purchase online!

. . . The tax on my E-M5 was $80 which is really just peanuts when you're spending $1000. I never worry too much about such an amount myself since I can't fill the tank on my car for less than $80 these days.
