1DsII or 7D

Sorry if this kind of question annoys but ....

There's a 15 000-20 000 actuations 1DsII on eBay for, probably, s/t like £1200 (the photos make it look pristine)
The 7D is about the same £ online

My 1DII is long in the tooth (180 000) and after selling my 40D I am now looking for a second body ... I wouldn't consider anything with a III in its name btw

I take mostly wildlife (with 500+1.4x/2x) but do do landscape (24-105) as well. Not really decided if video would interest me yet

After a thread here last week I now know that 1DsII has more effective reach than the 1DII (& less than the 7D)

I'd appreciate some perspectives other than my own ... I'm leaning to the 1DsII but also wonder about the choice of a five-year old body over a new one

Thanks in advance for any answers
