As per previous comment - "you earn money off photography, bought a 5D2 for back up and have NOT tested it yet?"

So, that one off my chest, I'll come back to a constructive comment.

The only thing that the 5D2 has ever suffered from is poor AF feature set.
ISO was up there just behind the D3(s) and 1D4 until the 1Dx & 5D3 turned up.

Until that point, the 5D2 was more than accepted as a wedding togs camera of choice.
Mine always followed me to work and I had no qualms about shooting at ISO 6400. I agree, it's not 1DX in final image output, but then nor is it in the same price band...

Go and try the 5D2 out and get some test shots to see what you can get - and remember, it is not a requirement for every shot to be absolutely noise/ grain free.

Some times, a picture can even be improved with a touch of grain/ noise. I would post some sample images - but some one has beaten me to it.  ;)
