Ok, Ive been attached to my 7D and if I think of selling it, it hurts me. But the thing is, im not using it anymore because of my 5D3. I dont shoot sports, and I never did shoot when I first bought my 7D. I shoot mainly portraits and landscape which I choose 5D in such work.

So, i just want your opinions on what would be a lens replacement if I decide to sell my 7D. What would be a fun lens to add in my collection?

I seriously enjoy my 24-70mm 2.8 Mk II.

Very versatile.

Yes, thats a great choice. It would cover most of the focal lengths i need. However, I dont want to spend or add more cash for it since im kinda tight at the moment. Its not a rush decision though.

You ought to try a wide angle for landscape - your 35mm is only a moderate wide. Start with 24mm and see whether you want to go wider. Candidate lenses: 16-35mm f/2.8 Mk II, 17-40mm f/4, one of the 24-something zooms, 24mm f/1.4 Mk II, some adapted 24mm.

Disregard this advice if you had the 10-22 and didn't like wide.

How about one or two of these:
Sigma 15mm fish
Tokina makes an UWA zoom for FF that looks fun if you like UWA
85 f/1.8 might be a nice low cost addition to your kit
100mm (non L) may be most fun per dollar... 100L isn't too shabby either
135L
300 f/4L IS
400 f/5.6L
Maybe try a Zeiss lens... Manual focus might be fun... Or it might not.

Those should all be fun and within your budget after selling 7D.

85/1.8. 35/85 is a fantastic general use combo. Add the 135L and you're set for life.

Yeah... Used you could probably add 135L and 85 f/1.8 for close to what you'd get for the 7D. The only reason I didn't recommend this initially is because the two are a bit redundant with your 70-200... I'd hate to see you buy two lenses and then always leave them at home. That's why I tried recommending other focal lengths that you don't already have covered.

Yeah, but I wouldn't want to always lug around a 70-200/2.8. That gets old pretty fast.
