But I keep asking myself if 2 FF bodies: (5D3 being awesome AF and the other (5d2) not really offering anything else better or different. While the 7d offers a couple of things, better AF than 5d2 and more reach. But at the expense of ISO. So the only reason to keep the 5d2 would be if I wanted 2 FF on me at all times at a wedding, which I dont, and if i needed the camera systems to be the same, which I dont care. I am familiar with both, actually more the 7d because i reached for it alot before the 5d3.

I wish I'd been here a week ago to throw in my two cents.  Well, here it is anyway.  I say keep the 7D.  You imply that you use it and like it more than the 5D2.

That said, if it were me I'd keep the 5D2.  I currently use two 5D3 during weddings and find it extremely useful to pop different lenses on each so changing a lens is as easy as a quick hand-off with my assistant.  And processing is easier too.  Yes, you can have different lenses on FF and crop and make it work but I've done that and found I prefer keeping everything the same.  But again, to each their own style and though I've used 7Ds in combination, a few years back I switched to solely FF, all same body.
