7i vs 7Hi

I sure this question has already been raisied a few times already, but what the heck...

I am having trouble deciding which camera to purchase: the 7i or 7Hi?

I am not sure the price difference is worth it. In addition, my guess is that the 7i price will drop further as the 7Hi becomes more available.

What do you really get for the money?

Better grip - nice, but little impact on picture quality

Better Autofocus? - not sure if this is true. Some reviews mention it, but there is little talk about it. Can anyone comment on this?
Flash sync terminal - nice, but will rarely use

Extra level of JPEG compression (extra Fine) - less compression is always a good thing without the RAW or TIFF file sizes
Continuous Drive Advance - Could be useful, but only small % of time

There a few other improvements, but do they all add up to a $250 difference? What do you think? And if you think the 7Hi is worth the extra $, then what new feature has the most value?
