Depends on what kind of photography you enjoy or do.

For action, aviation, wildlife, photojournalism, sports; 1D-IV is a good bet

For everything else; - 5D-MKIII

If you do a little of everything; get both. :-)

And I only have a 1D-IV but want very badly a 5D-III.  I would have said the 1D-IV also for low light performance but apparently the 5d-III has it beat there also.

Everybody is defending his gear.

Both are good cameras.
Buy what you need.

For me (will say it again) the AF of the 5D mark III rocks.
And yes I also have the 1D mark IV.

And when focal length is NO issue then the 5D mark III will deliver better IQ.

This isn't defending the gear - this is reputing the myths that get uttered about other kit to justify their own purchases.

To say that the only differences between a 1d4 and a 5DIII apart from fps is pure bunkum. The metering on the AF point is significant for the majority of shooters and to be dismissed as 'trivial' is nonsense.

On the other hand you will have seen me sugesting the 5DIII is a better buy than a 1Ds3.

I have nothing against a 5DIII as I believe it is an excellent camera, but it does get on my goat when Rockwellisms are uttered to rubbish a body.
