I actually returned a 5R in favor of an F3.  The built-in flash was the big deal for me, and saving $250 was pretty nice too (of course the prices vary constantly).  I find not only is the flash much more convenient, but also seems to be a bit more effective, even when not bouncing.  I'm able to transfer pictures from camera -> phone using an Eye-Fi card, so don't really miss the Wifi potential of the 5%.

The touch-shutter was nice on the 5R, but overall the touch screen is pretty bad, as has been covered extensively on this forum, and I never really tested the improved autofocus.

But really, as has been said, both great cameras and I'd hesitate to upgrade unless you specifically need a feature the 5R has that the F3 lacks.
