A full frame camera will give better options for portrait with thinner DOF cababilites, but in order to get the AF system at least as good as the 7D for other shooting, you will have to pay more than 2X more for the 5D3.

The 7D does a fine job at portraits, especially when paired with some good fast portrait primes like a 50/1.4 or 85/1.8.

The 85/1.8 is a great head and shoulders lens and priced (more or less) reasonably as is the 50/1.4
