I think all the cameras I've bought from B&H and the Sony Store didn't come with tape sealing the box though.

Only P&S cameras tend to come with seals. Mirrorless and above don't. I think it's specifically so that people can open the up and play with them. Remember that the history of photo retailing was the local camera store. There, it was quite common for people to play with a camera before deciding to buy it.

One; all p&s are mirror less.

Two - Cybershot RX1s are sealed.

The A7R is also sealed

the RX1, being in the Cybershot line, could be considered a p&s even though it's one of the best cameras out there.

My a7r bought direct from Sony (online) was not sealed. Maybe it's a country thing. None of the Sony lenses I bought, and I have many, were sealed. And yes, when I go into a store I fully expect to put a lens on my camera and try it out. I often buy, but not always, and I don't see why the store would have to then discount the product and sell as used. That would drive the costs up even further.
