Fancy Buying Full Frame But Which?

I am looking into buying my first full frame Canon DSLR but am struggling with the choices available to me with my preference to get a bargain. At the lower price range sit the 1Ds and 5D which can both be had for around £700 on the used market. In the middle sits the 1Ds Mk 2 at around £1400 and then of course the 5D Mk 2 at around £1700. My intended use for the camera is mostly studio so speed is not really a factor. I currently run a 1D Mk 2 and a 30D which I use for everything including motorsport.

Obviously money is a big consideration for me but so is value for that money so spending more to get more value is an option. Would waiting for a 1Ds Mk 4 make sense to see a reduction in values of the Mk 2? What would you guys be looking at in my position?

Regards,
Jim
