5D or 7D? Opinions needed.

While knowing very much about both of these cameras, I am torn when having to actually decide between them. I will be buying one of the two in the next few days. I primarily shoot single shot with the center AF point. Landscapes and portraits are my favorite. But, I have also photographed wolves in Yellowstone. I am coming from a 40D, and at this point I am leaning towards the 7D, but that 5D has something special.

5D Pros:
IQ
DOF.
Diffraction limitation is not as severe.
Viewfinder.

5D Cons:
Cost,
my 10-22 won't work
Movie mode but without 720P,
no movie mode switch.
No flash controller. I only have one 430EX.
Vignetting with my current lenses

What am I forgetting here? What do you think I should do.
