You want a used camera at sensible money for landscape and portraits yet you rule out the 5D?
I have owned a few crop cameras (both 1.6 and 1.3 (1D4) and, for this sort of work my 5D was my preferred camera. It might be old but the images are excellent - made my 50D look a bit poor to say the least. Now that I use the 1DX my 5D is semi retired but the images are far from shabby and certainly better than anything I got on APSC cameras.
From my experience I would take a 5D over any of the cameras you are considering for landscape and portrait. The only thing wrong with the 5D (IMO) is the lack of liver view for macro work - but then you don't mention that as a consideration.
I had started writing a response on the same lines, especially after my recent good experience buying and using a 5D, but then I saw (s)he wants to learn video. That might be the reason to discount it.
