5D Mark 2 [VS] 7D Mark 2

Older sensor tech on a Full Frame vs new tech on a APS-C. What are your thoughts? Should one sell his 5D2 for the 7D2? How does low-light compare?

Remember not just low light... 5d have a big sensor for wide shots o photos.

The 7DMkII is still a cropped sensor camera, so the low light performance should be noticibly better on the 5D. There are other factors, like the cropped image that the 7D has, so the same lenses would look differently on them.

I'm aware of the crop factor. I don't have a problem taking a few steps back or switching to a wider lens.

Believe me, you will when you are filming in tight spaces like kitchens, bedrooms etc.
Apart from the crop factor, the 5D has better low-light performance (I'm not affraid to crank it up to 1600 ISO) and a very shallow depth of field.
