OT - E-PM2 camera $299 (red) Question re: prices

Is there a catch when a dealer is selling cameras for a lot less than other stores?

I found the E-PM2 camera for $299 on Amazon - 3rd party (not sold as Amazon). The same camera (including red) is listed as $399 other places (incl B&H, Adorama).

I also found a few other cameras a lot cheaper on this website - including some Canon p&s cameras ($200 camera $60 cheaper). They do not have much stock - just a smattering here and there of different brands. One is listed as (only 1 left).

However, their ratings on Amazon (21 total) are all 5 out of 5. Maybe they are a new store, but why the good deals?

I am interested in purchasing one and taking advantage of the prices, but hesitate because they are not a camera store and their stock is quite small. Warranty card is listed in box contents.

Any thoughts?
