To me the speed is roughly the same...but the Mk 3 is all over the 7D for nailing focus!

What you notice is not so much the focusing speed, but that the 5D III can acquire a lock faster, as do the 1 series cameras and the 5D III much is more stable in a long burst of shots. The 7D requires you to take short bursts and then pump the AF button to reacquire focus for best results. 5D III also deals with lower contrast subjects much better than 7D and even the 1D IV.
