But the 5Mk2 is still 2 stops ahead of the 40. And is $1500 cheaper.

Here in NL the 5d3 is offered for $3500 body only and the 5d2 PLUS 24-105 f/4L for $2500.
Or wait for the 70d with a crop sensor but with DIGIC 5 and I can keep two of my lenses (which are APS-C and thus useless on the 5d) ?

Better ISO performance will shorten exposure times by at least a factor of four, reducing tracking errors greatly.
I'm with Luigi on the RAW/ISO comments. Little value to ISO above 1600 in RAW.
