Going from 7D to 5DMK2 - what do you think I'll be missing?

Apart from the sensor size and image quality AND getting real focal-length, about every other thing in 7D is more advanced. I thought about selling my 7D to get 5Dmk2.

My main subjects are portraits, landscapes and closeup details (not macro).

Now, since photographers make photographs not gear, it makes sense to me to bite the bullet and go with 5dmk2 for the IQ alone. The price is getting lower and lower.

So, some of you that have or had both cameras, what do you think about this move?

Is 5Dmk2 that much inferior in terms of auto focus and speed? I know that I'll miss the leveler and built-in flash controller.
