Maybe consider Canon refurb (comes with warranty):
Then, as funds allow, add a flash for portrait and a Canon 50mm F1.8 STM for portrait.
I haven't followed refurbished of other brands, but had excellent success and value with Canon. Got the 5D mk iii that way, plus the 5DS
Lately, I ordered the M5 ... and in October, it included a refurbished lens adapter for $748 ... the last few days, there was a 15% discount off that too. It's a lovely piece of equipment and works perfect. So the reburb option has been good and save plenty of money.
