I've recently moved from a 7D to a 5D MKIII and can confirm that at lower ISOs (<4/800) the IQ difference is marginal at best.  Above this it is clear that there is less noise in the 5D sensor, especially when you consider that the 7D is natively capped at 6,400 (without expansion).

As others have said above, the advantage of the MKIII over the 7D is the DOF, and the crop factor.  Both of these will be more/less important dependent on what type of photography you're into.  Being primarily interested in landscape photography I wanted less crop to get more out of wide angle lenses.

As the 5D is my first FF camera, I've also noticed that images seem a lot brighter and "sparkle" more over the 7D, although this could just be me buying into the MKIII love-in.  I would be interested to get peoples option on this...
