i know a friend who can take really good portraits, street, etc, with only an iphone. i don't think he is even looking for a dslr.
Nikon D90 | AF-S 18-105mm | AF 50mm f/1.8D | Tokina 12-24mm f4 | Sigma 30mm f1.4
Welcome to CS!
Both APS-C and FF cameras are capable of shooting good portraits. The key lies in the person behind the camera. If skills not there, no matter how good the camera is, you will not be able to shoot good and nice portraits.
I encourage you to read more online, join some outings, shoot more and share more.

Portraits can be shot with any camera. Can you tell which one is shot by what kind of camera and lens? I will give you a prize if you can answer correctly.
Actually if you want to get a full-framer (5DMII) then you'd have to be prepared for higher costs when you buy lenses. Lens for full-frame DSLRs tend to be more expensive, compared to those for crop-frame DSLRs. But note that all full-frame lenses work on crop-frame DSLRs, but non-full-frame lenses DO NOT WORK on full-frame DSLRs!
some non-ff lens do work on FF bodies.
An example is the DX 35/1.8 on a D700.

i buy i sell i use, repeat, such are the vicious endless cycle of GAS
1 post kena shot so many times..
I think next time must add disclaimer Liao
For equivalence lens in terms of zoom taking in the cropped factor between the lens for full frame body and lens specifically for crop bodies, generally the full frame lens can be more expensive. However, you can pick up a really cheap 50 f1.8 lens which is made for the full frame bodies and it can still be used on a crop body.
I hope, the sentence above is not misleading. Corrections??
