No need to reinvent.

The 17-55 is a superb lens. I'm not surprised you find the quality great. You'll be surprised again at how much better it is on the 7D. You'll find detail you didn't realize was there.

The 70-200 is also a good choice. In the 70-80mm range, it make for a good portrait lens.

For now, I'd get the lens. Good glass is always good glass. The 40D is nice performer....I used two of them as my main wedding cameras for years. While I can't deny the 7D is better in virtually every way....and is only beaten by the 5D2....for what you're doing, the 40D should probably be sufficient.
