Without looking at everybody's comments, I just bought a 5DmkII, after owning a Rebel for a few years, and couldn't be happier.

I was looking back through quite a few of my 5D Mark II photos from when I had the camera, and even the in-camera JPG copies are excellent. The IQ is really great. There is just "something" about those photos that's different, not better per se, but different, than the 5D Mark III photos that I really miss. I'm getting a new one as a third body I believe. Really nice camera for what it can do. Has anyone ever compared to the 1Ds Mark III? I often wondered about that.
Much better than 17-40L is Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 at the same price. See
Would upgrading your 70-200 to a used non-IS 2.8 be an option? You'll get a F stop, have a zoom, and can look forward to keeping it around. Yes, this is a dangerous question..

How much DOF do you want?
50mm f/177 gives hyperfocal at 74cm, that's everything sharp from 37cm to infinity...
('sharp' being a relative term, of course)
