Ah... another APS-C 18MP sensor from Canon. Is it just me or did Canon get a ship-load of these at some bargan center and now they have to find some way to unload them all???

Keep the 70-200: better IQ and versatility. You could always add the 1.4x later to get close at 280 f/5.6.
The only reason I use filters is to protect my lens from other things that can break it.
In the summer I shoot with high quality UV filters on and I don't notice a negative impact at all. There's more glass in an IS stabilized lens afterall with no degradation of IQ.
I'd be happy to switch sides if Nikon decides to pay for my gear from here on out.
WOW! I cannot believe the 10 pages of drama.
(I sleep quite well, thank you).
The 5D Mark III by itself is a much, much more powerful tool than the 5D Mark II and 7D combined. If you know how to use it (which most critics do NOT) you would know this. If you are complaining about a black AF point, you really have problems to begin with in your photography anyways, so the differences between these cameras would be a non-issue.
