Been checking for the 70-200 2.8 II for several days .... it just now popped up back in stock.
I bought it. With overnight shipping, out the door price was $1772.89 USD. I decided against free ground shipping, as I think the less the lens is handled by UPS the better.
There seems to be more in stock. Don't think I will find a better price than this, especially coming directly from Canon.
