Re: 7D for portraits

Portraiture is my primary use for my 7D. My primary lens is a Tamron SP 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) but I just bought a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM.

I do recommend a lens that will perform well in low light so that you can get good focus with only modeling lights.

With a good camera holding technique over 90% of the images are tack sharp.  With my Tamron  lens I can see individual eyelashes on a waist up portrait.  If you start with a sharp image you can't go wrong.
