You're in luck since I own a 7k/10k and a 7k/7k.
I like the 7k/10k slightly more since there's a bit more blue compared to the 7k/7k. However it's not hugely noticeable, the 7k/7k has a bit more of a yellow to it... however the 7k/7k came out due to customer demand so your tastes may differ, 7k is better for plants I think anyways and probably does look a bit more natural with plants.
