The 24-105 L is also susceptilbe to zoom creep, btw. Mine does, and so do those of many others. Especially as they get older. Its just a thing....annoying but not fatal.

Any other option than the best bodies and the fastest glass for nightlife with no flash?
I don't see the 5DII as enough of an upgrade over the 5D, unless you 'need' the megapixels. There are some nice features, but I kept mine through the 5DII and just recently got one of the discounted MKIIIs (that is a HUGE upgrade).
Glass is a better investment at this point. I have the canon 85 1.8, and the 135F2L. The 85 is a great lens. The 135 blows it away. Currently under rebate for less than $900...buy two! Excellent headshot and portrait lens. Just stunning.
The 100mm macro is an awesome lens as well, but i'd get the 135 for portrait/general work. If you want to do macro, get the macro. (I have both).
What abou 1ds2? Maybe it is better upgrade than 5d2 ?
I am not sure I get the point with another 24-70mm. Then why release the v2 ?
Think of 2012 as the year in which Canon made multiple tactical errors with their camera/lens lineup for EOS still cameras.
What do I mean by that?
The 24-70/2.8II would have been in the planning for quite some number of years prior and at that time Tamron was developing their 24-70/2.8 VC. Come announcement time, Canon delivers a lens at around twice the price of the Tamron with marginally better IQ and no image stabilisation. Oops. Tamron out played Canon.
The announcement of the 5D Mark III delivered a camera with marginally more pixels and almost the same IQ as the 5D Mark II. Sure the autofocus is better, but it has been outclassed by Nikon's D800 that intro'd at $600 less, only for the 5D Mark III to have since dropped in price to match the Nikon. Oops, Canon picked the wrong sensor to put in the 5D Mark III. Nikon out played Canon.
