5D II to 5D III for better focus?

I trade my 7D for 5D II and really like it, except the focus. So, I am wondering about upgrade to 5D III, but for an amateur to spend that much money is kind of questionable. Does anyone here upgrade from II to III just for the new focus systems? My biggest problem is  I am so used to all the focus point on the 7D because it so much easier to compose a pictures with not much crop after it done, there is always a focus point I can choose to be on the eye the person. With the 5D II I have to used the limited number of focus point and crop more afterward. The second problem is, only the center focus point on the 5D II seem to do well in Ai Servo in low light, all the other focus point is almost useless. So, for those of you who did the upgrade, please share your experience, does it worth it? Thanks in advance.
