It looks like a new batch of Lee Big Filter have just been delivered across many stores such as B&H and Adorama. Last week Adorama had in stock for a few days but is now out of stock. However, B&H still has it in stock.

I am getting mine tomorrow from B&H. I am crossing my fingers, but there is a strong possibility that it will have it. I am just curious... I know that Adorama was doing the same sale, too, but in a shorter window... Anyone bought from Adorama with the clicking issue? What about lens from Amazon? Is this limited to the batch from B&H?
I have both lenses (17-55 f2.8 IS and 24-70 f2.8 v2). Based on the info you provided here's my advice:
1) Why would you use the 24-70 v2 on the 7D when you already have a 5dmk3? The 24-70's distinct advantages will be more apparent on a FF body because f2.8 on a cropped body is about the equivalent of f4 on a FF so you won't see a benefit in terms of depth of field and bokeh.
2) If you're not using the 17-55 for video then I recommend selling it. The 24-70 v2 is optically superior in just about every noticeable way. Even though it's not an IS lens, the 5Dmk3's ISO is at least 2 stops better than the 7D so you can always crank up the ISO and still have a better image than the 17-55.
Just my two cents,
The 24-70 is very good, but its not wide enough for a crop body, so you still need a wide lens.
I'd watch for a deal on a FF body to go with your new lens.
I think he already has the 5D3.
