Canon EOS 1D Mark III VS Canon EOS 7D (Getting a new camera)

Hey guys! I'm trying to get a camera but I don't know what to get. A Canon EOS 1D Mark III or Canon EOS 7D? This will be my SECOND DSLR (I have a T4I). Okay Canon EOS 7D and 1D Mark III are both great cameras with the same price.

Of course these cameras have some advantages and disadvantages

7D advantages that 1D Mark III do not have
*Only naming important ones

Movie mode
More megapixels (17.9mp)
More lenses compatible
Better maximum ISO
Built in Flash
Larger Viewfinder
Better boost ISO

(If your considering that the 7d has more higher resolution screen, is smaller, lighter, thinner, is important, then okay..)

1D Mark III advantages that 7D do not have
*Only naming important ones

Longer battery life
Better color dept
Better image quality
More focus points
LOWER NOISE AT HIGH ISO (1078 ISO)
Larger sensor (28.7x18.7mm)
Shoots faster continous shooting (10 FPS)
More SD card slot (2)

(If your considering the 1D Mark III has less shutter lag and less start up delay is important.. then. Okay)
