Absolutely fine for portraits

Slap a Sigma 50 f/1.4 or Canon 85 f/1.8 on it and you're good to go. If you have Canon flashes with stands and light modifiers, you also have very flexible remote control options straight from the camera LCD. The 7D makes a great portrait DSLR.

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.
