One last thing I NEVER mentioned is I won't be doing sports shots either.

So I am thinking jump with the 7d or I am so close (September) should I just wait and get the 70d?

as to the video. i have had a 7D for 2 years and don't even know how to do video w/ it. so that isn't a factor. it's a great camera. but with budget in mind and your primary interest being in portrait, i think any of the more recent rebels would serve you just as well. if you are looking for a step up from those for portraits, full frame is worth considering. you could go w. 6D or shop adorama, b and h, keh. for a used or refurbished 5Dmkii or even mki. a 50mm 1.4 would work for an economical portrait lens i think or 85 mm 1.8. are reasonably priced lenses. someone who know portrait photography might suggest something else
