comment What would be a good upgrade from my Canon kit lens for portrait photography?
I think you mean the 50mm f1.8. The f1.4 is significantly more expensive.

comment RAWs looking massively different in Aperture/Mac OS Preview compared to camera preview and (Canon) PictureStyleEditor
Aperture is over-saturating the image, specifically in the blue channel. Dial back the blue channel saturation and you will have a much more usable picture. Lightroom has camera profiles that do a decent job of mimicking the default camera processing, if that is what you want, Aperture may have something similar, I don't know.

comment Was the lack of video capture on “old” DSLRs an artificial restriction?
As noted in @Itai's answer the main problem - even with alternative firmware - is the sensor physically overheating.

comment Why does my Canon 7D get blurry pictures with a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS (series 1)?
Possibly so, but I'm only speaking from personal experience. I know I had a lot more camera shake than I expected when I first got my 70-200 (even with IS) and had to adjust my shutter speed accordingly.

comment Is it worth buying a battery grip for my camera?
What brand was it? I had a Zeikos that drained batteries, but an Opteka that did not.

comment How does a short flange back distance improve image quality?
Indeed, that's the value proposition for the consumer.

"the D7000 is actually fairly decent at high ISO...not awesome, but really no camera is." Setting aside cost as a factor, the most recent full frame cameras from Nikon and Canon are pretty awesome at high ISO. That said, probably not a realistic option for the original poster.
