Greeting me in my inbox was an ad for $1599 kit for $849, and not from some sleazy on-line rip off camera store but from B&H.

I really had no interest in a V1, but it was tempting none-the-less at that price.

But my question (given the assumption it is legit being B&H) is where all that margin comes from, with stores claiming Nikon cameras have so little margin in them. Does Nikon USA fund that kind of sale?

Or are the stores really making that kind of margin all the time, while normally holding to the manufacture's preset price mostly?

And oh... if you wanted a V1, check it out (I have no ties to B&H or Nikon).
