7D or 5D MKII???

I'm about to purchase a new 7D, but I just wanted to make sure I shouldn't be spending the extra money for the 5d MKII. I don't really NEED FF and my shooting will probably be 50% sports (mainly horse racing, but some other things as well) and 50% models. (portraits, full body shots, etc.) Is there any real benefit to the 5D MKII other than full frame? Comparing the specs of the two, it seems as if the 7D will be much more useful for my sports shooting with the higher FPS and the 1.6 crop will actually be beneficial with my 100-400 lens. Am I missing something? Is the FF really worth the extra $900 or so?

Any thoughts would be great!

Thanks!
