Which camera delivers superior image quality? Not content to upgrade to 5D III, but considering 7D, Thoughts?

I'm a walk a bout photographer of many years(too many) which includes a fair amount of landscape in the shots and have just purchased a 7D. It is a superb camera in so many ways that the 5d2 and original 5D aren't (I owned a 5d and now have two 5d2's along with have had all the 1 series FF cameras and still have 1ds)

I submit to a stock agency and have to work on my images at 100% before submitting them and I just can't take the 100% view of the 7D files anymore. It's a shame but thats the truth of it. I'll go back to my 5D2 or my old 500D for now.

Today I dug out my 1ds that has a similar sensor the the original 5D and everything about that 1ds is hard to live with till you see the images on screen at 100% and think that someone has worked on them behind your back, that's how good those early FF chips were(but you do have to live with the old ergonomics )

I feel so much better now that I've given up Hope
