With that price, it makes much more senses to get a used 5D2 that is better in every aspect on OP needs as she doesn't need beef-up AF in her types of shots and 5D2 AF (with center-point only) is also very good.

My advice is to go Nikon D700. Much better camera in build and features than 5D.
The 1Dsii IMHO is a bit of a dinosoar and yes i have owned one.

Cheapest way though I suppose is 5D. and yes i still own one and shoot paid work with it.
You will want to change the focus screen for MF.
