better question your skills first before you upgrade, sometimes you intend to buy wrong gears bcoz of ur skill level...
My company uses 7D + 5DM2 (company camera).. Yup the 7D has 19AF points and the 5DM2 only 9... the 5DM2 is slow in AF.. we usually use it to shoot video, in manual focus of cos... photowise usually we use the 7D cos it performs better and faster in terms of focusing.. of cos one is full frame and one is crop.. not talking about image quality or the full/crop body etc the Mark 2 is good in terms of image quality etc etc.. but regards to the performance of AF, the mark 2 is abit annoying... of cos the high ISO on the 5DM2 is much much better...
i will not touch on other camera brands in details in case this discussion turns to something else but yup there are some other brands like S or P can give you alot more features more value for less dollar... you can get entry level camera with cleaner images at high iso, and fast fps.. alot more bang for the buck and its only their entry level...but thats another story...
i might be wrong, BUT i believe taking photos on a 1.4 at wide open, you might get blurry corners, might not be ideal for all situations though a 1.4 lens is good to have if the situation arises for it

Do you shoot in RAW format and post process? Sometimes you can get better quality images this way.
Shooting in low light will always lead to some noise in images. Are you trying to freeze motion? If not use a lower ISO and tripod. Consider getting a convenient tripod like the gorillapod or chinabrand equivalent (from Mustafa). Or use the string and bolt method:

Any lens faster would be a prime. But prime may not be for everyone. I used to use prime and liked it, but now I don't, and it depends a lot on what u want to shoot. Maybe as some say TS is trying to shoot street, then that's fine. But I'm not sure if TS has gone thru a day of shooting and is comfortable with using only one focal length?
