Serial over 1.000.000 doesn't mean anything. It's just internet sellers tricks to make someone buy their camera where they make things up like "the best were working at this point, BUY MY CAMERA!". L seal doesn't mean anything good or bad either, because it can mean it had a CLA. I'd pick #1 becase you don't want to spend another 200 bucks to make it usable. If shutter times don't work it will be unusable.
Regarding the DoF, check this, it's un-usuable, and novelty basically unless you take pictures of things that don't move?: http://static.photo.net/attachments/...-163435584.gif
