The question is then how much that advantage is offset by the higher resolution and larger sensor of the 5DII.

In this case it's aparantly not enough. (although I can't say that it is a great scene to check image quality)

It is.

24-70, 35mm, f/2.8, FF

17-55, 50mm, f/2.8, 7D

And those are not even equivalent apertures. This is f/4 on FF, almost equivalent:

BTW, the OP frontfocused with the 5DII. The focus is on the edge of the roof.
