From Canon USA:
 
To Users of the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lenses with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera.
 
Thank you for using Canon products.
 
We have confirmed that when the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and some units of the EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM lenses are used with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera, the Lenses may emit an abnormal noise.
 
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera does not need to be repaired as a result of this phenomenon.
 
The support measures for this phenomenon have been decided and they are as described below.
 
Phenomenon
 
If either of the Lenses is attached to the camera with the Image Stabilizer switch on the Lenses set to ON, the Image Stabilizer will synchronize with the autofocusing (AF) function and an abnormal noise may occur. This abnormal noise does not affect captured images.
 
This phenomenon only occurs when the camera is used with either of the Lenses, and does not occur when the camera is used with other lenses.
 
Affected Products
 
EF200mm f/2L IS USM Lens
EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens
 
*This phenomenon does not occur with cameras other than the EOS 5D Mark III.
 
*If the fifth and sixth digit of the six-digit alphanumeric number that is imprinted on the lens mount of the above EF lenses is of any of the following numbers, the lens is affected.
 
EF200mm f/2L IS USM: If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, or 02.
EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM:If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, or 06.
 
How to Identify Affected Products:
 
Please check the six-digit alphanumeric number as indicated in the image below.

I just receive word from Adorama that all of their Canon EOS 5D Mark III body preorders will be filled today with extras available.
 
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III bodies are not yet showing as in stock, but again, I'm told that extras are available - just place a preorder. How many extras are available is of course a good question - and I'll let you know that answer when I receive it.
 
Don't forget that the 5D III qualifies for the Canon doubled lens and flash rebates.
 
Update: Adorama now has both the Canon EOS 5D body-only and the with-lens kit in stock.

J&R has the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens Kit in stock now. Act fast - I don't expect these to last very long.

Adorama expects to have the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens Kit available in stock "in a few days".
 
Again, this lens is a great deal in the kit and a great choice for a pro-grade 5D Mark III general purpose lens. Sell it if you do not need it.
 
Also remember that the 5D III qualifies for the doubled Canon lens and lash rebates.
