I have a 5D Mark III as my main body, but would like a cheap backup or one to thrash around depending on the situation.

I'm new to canon, so I don't know anything about the older bodies. Are the picture styles and looks the same? How about menus and controls?

For Nikon I had a D70s which while old, was still a good camera for cheap! I got it for $125, but sold all my nikon gear.

The recommendations of a 30D or 40D make a lot of sense. A high mileage 50D might also be in range. I bought a used 50D from LensRentals for about $500 last summer. When it arrived, it had over 112,000 shutter actuations. When I picked up a 1D Mark III in the Fall I found I couldn't sell the 50D, pretty much at any price, even though it's in excellent condition.
