Well thanks everyone for your comments and advice. Hopefully I hear back from the guy and can pick it up tomorrow!

Hey have you got ahold of that person selling that 5d? I've been watching that ad and it hasn't had any contact info on it. I've also saw an ad for a 5d mark II for 900$. Oh and hello from another Minnesotan!
Where are you in MN? This guys has been trying to sell it for a while, odd the contact information has disappeared - here's the last email from him @ email@example.com:
"it works perfectly. I have compared it to my other 5d and cannot tell a difference in image quality at all, same for either of my 50d's, or my 1ds. I have a bit of gear, as you can see, so I don't really need to sell this. I thought someone who might want full frame quality might be interested."
Yeah I saw the Mark II out in Washington, WI for $900 (includes the box too) - crazy eh?
So he said it doesn't autofocus properly because of the drop I believe you said in a post? How did you contact him? And I live over in the maple grove area, crazy to find another Minnesotan on here! I really wanted to buy that 5d2 for 900$. To CarlTN I bought myself a 1d classic 4mp for less than 300$ and the autofocus is better in low light than my 5d2 very good auto focus for a 12 year old camera! Only if it had more mp, but in good lighting produces great photos.
Any fellow croppers get a cheap 5D (CLASSIC) as a second body? Is it worthwhile to just get a taste of full frame goodness? In my market (Twin Cities) I've noticed these tools showing up weekly on Craigslist...this one in particular is selling for $250...
A P51 and a friendThe P-51 is a beauty... but boy... I LOVE the spitfire!
This are the Reenactment of the " Battle of Hillsborough" at Hillsborough, North Carolina, USA , in 2/19/2011
Yes, To learn the Historical Facts and observe the Historical Reenactment at the Sites.
Yes, All the Photos in this Post are just the Recorded Photos, Not Arts work or Beautiful Photos, Just the real Recorded Photos with minimum Post processing.
Here are the last Photos.
Yes, I Have 3 Cameras and 3 Lenses with me :
--The First Camera = Canon 5D MK II with 24-70 mm F/ 2.8 L , for Typical Photos.
---2 ND one, Canon 7D with EF 70-200 mm F/ 2.8 L IS, for all mid range distant Photos and Closed Portrait Pictures
----3 RD, = Canon 1DS MK 1 with Canon EF 85 mm. F = 1.2 L MK II for super Back ground Blur..
There are a few companies that have been making these for years.
Alright everyone, I shoot portraits and weddings and here are my current lenses which I use on my 5DM3:
24-105 (great kit lens, but I might sell it)
24-70 f2.8 MK2
(Sigma) 12-24 - some people don't like this, but I think I got a good copy
70-200 f2.8 MK2
I'm trying to find a reason to buy either the 85mm or 135mm. Which should I buy? I know I have that length covered, but they're such celebrated primes that I'd just learn to zoom with my feet more and I know my results would be good.
So, here's my question. Both are very well-loved in the photog world, especially with portrait shooters. Which should I get? Or, should I be considering another prime altogether?
Thanks in advance!
Dear Sir, Mr. beckstoy.
For the Best Wedding/ portrait Lenses, Both of Them 85 1.2 II and 135 L 2.0 are great ---and Best of the Best Too. But So many Lenses that need to consider for perfected Photos, where the space between the model and the photographer are limited, and the Photographers do not have the choice ---Yes that why the Difference Lenses are force to use for the best of that situation.
Here are my Wedding / Portrait Lenses that I use as " One man army" past 5 years, and Its works for me.
Good luck for your selection of the great Lenses.

G= EF 85 MM. F/ 1.2 L MK II for total Blur of busy back ground, and let the Bride& Groom as the Movie Stars. Plus this Lens is to separate Us/ The Real Pay Photographers and Uncle Bob or aunt Jane who use 41 MP. Nokia Lumia Cell Phone Camera, which can get the better Pictures than Me----Ha, Ha, Ha
