Aish, just ordered yesterday at BH. Probably won't see it until May, makes the kit and sell the 24-105 really tempting

That's what I did.  I pre-ordered a 'body only' on 3/2, but when I didn't receive a ship notification on the 22nd(and was told on the phone that I was not going to be in the first wave by B&H) I ordered the kit on 3/22, received it the morning of the 23rd and after giving it a little workout that Saturday, cancelled my body only pre-order that Sunday.  I wasn't going to cancel until I had one in-hand.  I saw where a LOT of people ordered from other dealers who said they had them in-stock and immediately cancelled their original pre-orders and then got hosed because that dealer really didn't and then they "lost their place in line" when they cancelled with the first dealer.

I ordered my Canon 5D mark III body only on 3/03/12. B&H just posted it has shipped UPS, but UPS doesn't show it in their tracking system yet. Hoping to get it in three days. ;D

At the same time I really don't want to deal with selling the 24-105, I do have a 24-70 and the 70-200 already but I keep hearing about how the 24-105 is a nice walkaround general purpose lens but I'm not sure I see the need for it yet for me.

   Just received notification from B&H that my 5D3 is shipping today.  Order number 1019762254.   I hope every preorder gets filled soon.

If you need/want the 24-105, the kit is really a good deal, it saves you about $350 on the lens.  If you don't and sell it for say $1K, someone is still saving $150 and you're "making" $200 or essentially getting the body for $3300 instead of $3500.  Win/Win for everyone.  I'm not saying that should be your motivation for doing it that way, but it's a good solution to a problem.

That's what I initially thought at first too but after browsing a few places I can only find people selling it for slightly over 800 which is pretty much negligible in terms of total cost on top of having to spend the effort to find a buyer. I think the flood of 24-105 from kit may have lowered the street price?

Tell me about it haha ordered on 4/3 and 1020102xxx so not that much more in front -_-

That means they've cleared out all the initial preorders I believe which is probably a lot. Hopefully the ones after will clear faster since there's probably less order numbers related to the 5D at that point.
