Do It!

I know you didn't mention focus, but the 5D II has a little slower focus, but not as bad as some people say & not as good as the 5D III in the future. You also didn't mention Video, I know it also may not be an issue, but the 7D does do 720p @ 60fps. To some people that may be an issue.

The 5D II is a fantastic camera & so is the 7D. I owned the 7D, but the noise was too much for my liking. The 5D II is fantastic & if you need reach, you could attach a Tamron 1.4x converter & it would perform just as well as the 7D for image quality & a little slower focus.

5D II is a great camera & Low ISO noise to me is not an issue. I Tested it & I can't see it. If I process my RAW images with a free program called FastStone I can see noise, but not banding.

After you buy it .... test it! If you find problems exchange it with your authorized dealer. Had to send mine in 2 times & took 45 days to get it fixed for front-focusing!

Good Luck
