Canon EOS 5D

In the very near future I plan to make several equipment purchases. A Canon 24-70 f/2.8 lens is a virtual certainty and a Canon DSLR that will remain free of bulky accessories (such as battery grip) is a strong possibility.

I wish I'd bought a 5D Mark I when I had the chance. Money was a little tight when the last of the Mark I's were still available new, and it didn't get done.

I want a Canon DSLR (preferably full frame) that I can refrain from equipping with accessories which will serve as a relatively lightweight carry around camera for events like birthday parties and venues like the zoo.

It HAS to be a DSLR. It HAS to be a Canon EOS and it HAS to be a traditional still camera platform. Video's a 110% deal-killer right out of the gate. (PLEASE, let's not argue that point) I'd really like for it to be full frame, so I guess that we're talking about the EOS 5D MkI by default.

Are there any NIB examples still for sale out there? Or is that as mythical as the $48 'Jeep in a Crate'? Please note that I'm not quibbling about PRICE. I can either afford it or I can't. SUPPLY is my focus here.
