I am satisfied with my 5DMkII and my recent 5DMkIII.

I have no experience with 7D but this site is full of reports about 7D saying IQ is not so good at high ISO (although I haven't seen any complaints about its focusing which is said to be very good anyway).

I would opt for a 5DMkII for the quality in high ISO and format compatibility with 5DMkIII.

While I am pretty sure we’ll see such a camera eventually, I’m not sure when it will materialize.</p>
Taken from:
The Mathematics of Monkeys and Shakespeare  ;D  ( http://www.nutters.org/docs/monkeys )

I don't know who it was that first talked about the possibility of monkeys typing randomly on typewriters producing Hamlet entirely by chance, but it is an argument that I have often heard. "Sure it's unlikely," I'm told, "but given enough time and enough monkeys, it would happen."

Ok. seriously there is a slightly higher possibility that Canon 3D will materialize eventually. But this could be a nice CR0 rumor for now  ;D

Oh, since you are interested in AF performance at f/2.0 just make sure the 2nd body you get supports AFMA (both 7D and 5DMkII support it).
But you probably know that since your 50D has AFMA capability...

And to answer your question 5DMkII is a fine camera for high ISO. How high always depends on what your needs are and on the specific conditions which you may not control...

You haven't mentioned the lenses you  already have. For example if you have EF-S lenses you could sell them together with 50D/T3 and
get a 5DMkII as a backup to your 5DMkIII.

On the other hand if you have EF-S glass you will feel sorry to part with you can sell 50D/T3 and get the 7D you want.

Maybe I should write an article for the site on TS-E use as few people seem to know how to get the best out of these extraordinary lenses.

Please do.
Even better, do it first, announce it later  ::)

As many the months maybe...
Or... years!  :( This is a rumors site and everyone can write his or her BS! We simply do not know. For now I prefer to enjoy my TS-E 17mm. Less wide but still wide enough, plus having Tilt and Shift capability  ;) (and anyway the 14-24 is likely to have an equally high price).

A shifted stitch gives you an effective 11mm fov with a 40+mp sensor, medium format quality for comparative peanuts. A shift stitched 24mm TS-E image is even higher quality and more "normal" fov, and you can use filters on it.
Well, YES and NO. You must not shift a lot since it will cause vignetting in one side and it will impact the quality.
Plus you have to shift the camera and not the lens. To do that properly you need the HARTBLEI TS Collar for 500+ euros!!!

With that amount of money you can get a panoramic solution and use more lenses...

But generally 17mm is enough for me and I quite enjoy my TS lenses.

I think I'll go out and invest in a tank of gas and a bag of potato chips.... Wonder what they will be worth in 2023?
They will be worth a 2009 Digital SLR  ;D
