Thanks for the replies. It seems there's some who feel that IQ is significantly improved, and some who feel that IQ is about the same. The only way I'll know for sure is to rent a 5Dmkii/24-105 and make some comparisons.

One thing I have noticed with my 7D/15-85 is noise at low ISOs and an overall lack of sharpness. The latter may be user error, however.

I don't know about the 15-85, but some tests look like it is a sharp lens. Between the 7D and the 5DII with the same lens and low ISO, there is a slight advantage to the 5DII. Only you can tell if it's significant. Here's a landscape test I did:
