Looking to get an original 5d Seeing what I should look out for when buying a used 5d. anyone know any good places to get good deals other then ebay on the camera looking to spend around 600 if that on the body. What do I need to pay attention to when buying an old camera like this.

...it's hardly been used at all. 

Seriously, though, there are ways about it.  The first is if you're buying off ebay or an online forum.  Make sure it's a trusted seller with a decent return policy.  The second is if you're buying in person, such as Craigslist.  Check it over for damage, bring a lens and memory card, and fire off a bunch of shots.  If it seems good, then take the risk.  Otherwise, look for another deal.
