Canon 1D MARK III or Canon 7D for action?

Currently the 1D III is appx. costs twice as much as the 7D, with 10 FPS or and 8FPS frame rate respectively. The 1D III has 10.1 MP on a 1.3x cop sensor, equivalent to 16.2 MP on FF; the 7D has 18 MP on a 1.6x crop sensor, equivalent to 46 MP on a FF, so probably can capture more details. However, the 1D III focusing system is still superior to the one used in the 7D, so may be better for fast actions... But does this feature justify the 2x higher price?

If you had the capacity to buy both, which one would you buy today?

PS. I already have good lenses, I also have the 5D Mark II, so I would like to get advice on which second body you would buy?
