Record audio directly into 7D mkii vs. 5D mkiii

I am going to be recording a side freelance project and I want to record audio with the video as cheaply as possible. I'm planning to either rent a 7D mark ii or borrow a 5D mark iii from a friend. I plan to record audio from an inexpensive lavalier microphone directly into the camera. I've already tested the microphone into the 5D mark iii and the results are usable for my purposes.

MY QUESTION:

Would the 7D mark ii provide less noise using the exact same microphone setup? Or are the internal preamps the same on those 2 cameras?

I haven't recently seen a test (did you search Youtube?) but I've owned both cameras, and felt that the audio into the 5D mkii was superior. As an example, this is recorded with a relatively lower end lav directly into the 5d. I think the sound is fine. Your results may vary based on room, etc.

Thanks for your reply! That's helpful to hear your sense of which is better since you owned both.

Hi Joe,

What microphone are you going to be using to plug into the 5D Mark III?

I ended up getting an audio-technica hardwire microphone set with a AT8531 belt pack and AT803 microphone.

I plugged that microphone into one of those $20 headphone amps, then plugged that into the 5D mk3.

This is what it sounds like:
