I have read that the 7D is very strong for wildlife, action,etc., but I am curious as to experience on how it handles portrait work. I shoot both indoor with strobes as well as outdoor natural light portraits, and I have been using a 40D. Because of some shutter issues with the 40D I need to get a new camera. Because of some of the other subject matter I shoot, I am interested in the 7D.

It handles portrait work just great. Since the position of the focus points are acceptable, I can use wide open apertures without resorting to focus-recompose techniques.

Yep. The 7D outer points are very consistent. I use them all the time. I only used centre point on my 5D2 but now use the outers on my 5D3
