Default Upgrading DSLR; interested in video

DLSR body
I have an EOS 500D Canon (was about $500) and am looking to upgrade, and maybe spend close to $1,000 on a new body. I've been hearing a lot about the EOS 60D (and Mark II) lately, for what that's worth.

My main needs are:
- Higher ISO than 3200
- Strong video capability, in addition to photography
- Quicker functionality (my work Nikon - I believe it was a D3200 - was so much faster to change ISO, f-stop, etc.)

I also want to upgrade my general-purpose zoom lens. I have a Tamron 16-300mm (about $200 retail). Again, my very similar Nikon lens for work was similar but better.

I also currently own:
- Canon 50mm 1.8, a.k.a. the "nifty fifty"
- Tokina 100mm 2.8 (although highly praised, it's been hard to use so far)

For video, the 50mm has a nice focus/bokeh, but I'd like the same for a broad, general-purpose lens.

Any advice would be appreciated.
