the light was bad that day and 7D cheeses me off in bad light so that why I went with 1DIII
I have been pondering selling 1DIII and trying to get a 5DIII but I'm not sure I'm ready to give up this camera. It does produce the goods and cost me very little. I kind of use it as my go to camera that's going to do most subjects and the RAW files wont take forever to upload unlike my 7D and particularly 5DII
I find it hard to sell gear, its almost like giving away a child
I had the exact same "lineup" as you have: 5Dm2, 7D, and 1Dm3. I got the 1Dm3 last, and as soon as I got it, I loved it. I had sold a 50D to get the 7D; but in less than a year, I realized it was the body I liked least of the three.
So I sold both the 5Dm2 and 7D and bought a 5Dm3. It's a wonderful body, probably the best of any I have had, but the 1Dm3 still gets plenty of use. For me its responsiveness, solid feel and clean smaller files will keep it humming for quite a while.
