Default Garmin Decision

Replacing a Raymarine C70 and have settled in on either a Garmin 5012 or the 7012. I have had my hands on the 5012 but not the 7012.
Is there $2k worth of difference for the 7012? The write up is great, I like the sound of the newer operating system and the much quicker screen refresh.
I am looking for comments on both models and any first hand comparison experiences.
Thank you for your help

The refresh on the 7k system is much faster. Do a search, lots of discussion on this topic here in this forum.
