It's 140 less for a practically like new unit.

I hear you. Majority of online retailers these days collect taxes.
But, wouldn't a new EM10 be taxed also if you live in a taxed state?
Not really. If you live on the West Coast, all of the major New York vendors, including B&H, Adorama, Cameta, etc. don't charge sales tax outside of NY and NJ (and maybe CT, you tell me). If you live in the New York metro area, Samy's doesn't charge tax (but they do to me here in California). As a Californian, I'd much rather buy my refurbs from Cameta than from the Olympus Outlet because of that big tax difference. And I buy my new gear from the aforementioned B&H, Cameta, or Adorama.
How are refurb prices on Cameta? Do they run additional 20% off like Olympus?
They tend to be similar to Olympus without the 20% off. So without a 20% sale, Cameta is cheaper to me by the amount of the tax (8-9% depending upon where in California you are). But if Oly is running 20% off, they will tend to be 11-12% cheaper than Cameta.
