One other plus for the 5D2 is that it shares the same batteries as the 7D, and they are superior to the 5D batteries.
I never really liked the 5D past ISO 800, where I'll happily shoot the 60D at ISO 1600 and expect the 7D to be similar. I happily shoot the 5D2 at 1600, and even 3200 in a pinch.
I shot the most assignments with the 5D, but I'm glad to be using the 5D2 and 1Ds3 as my FF cameras.
I would look into the 1Ds2 right now. You can find them for around $900, and they have superior imaging by a wide margin over the original 5D.
Back to your original quandary: Yes the 5D will produce more pleasing pictures than the 7D, IMO.
