Exprienced but new to STM32 with questions

Ti has dropped its M3 Stellaris line. Their new M4 does not have I2S or extended memory controllers. It takes time to know a product line, which parts are up and coming, which ones to avoid, and which tool set. I'm starting over here and hope to find a short cut or two.
The questions:  
The STM32F207 looks like a good candidate, I see a eval board for it. We do not need Ethernet or EMM on the first project but do need I2S, 2 SPI, >64k RAM and =>50 MHz clock. Is this a good choice?
What about IDE's? Ti Code Composer was Eclipse based, is there something similar for ST32? I like IAR but the $4k is steep and for a commercial app I can't use Kick-Start.
The ST-Link/V2 looks like a bargain. Is it?

Hello everyone and thanks for nay help you can give me making the transition.
