From what I can see, the "local camera stores" are getting beat in price as well. As I understand this, local small camera stores have to go through a distributor or wholesaler, which adds a level the chains can avoid.

Yes, Amazon is selling for very little profit.  As much that Amazon sells, I was surprised they made only $100,000,000 profit in the first quarter.  Extremely slim profit margins but very high volume.  A local store cannot compete due to volume.
