I'm trying to decide whether a 5DII is best for my wedding business
or another 5D plus lenses. I have a 5D but have not used it for
weddings yet and I'm a little concerned that the 5D in low light may
not be good enough at 1600 or 3200 iso. My limited testing so far
doesn't convince either way. What do think? Any wedding photographers
using the 5D in low available light? What about banding?

I sometimes shoot at ISO3200 if necessary, but I admit I try to avoid it as much as possible because of the banding I can get from times to times, particularly with lenses like the 50/1.4 or 85/1.2L, even in one shot AF.

Here's a concert shot at ISO3200 with the 300/2.8L IS that doesn't show banding :
