You can pretty much buy one for brand new on ebay. Just type in Canon m5 and should be the first one. No warranty though because grey market items, but that just basically means it's from different countries, still brand new and untouched. I always buy grey market items and never had problems with them. Never needed warranty. My grey market Canon cameras still going strong after 10 years.
I guess it's preference. I too, rarely buy new. I've always used Canon refurbs or new grey market off ebay. Never had any issues on both and works great.

Everytime I start to pull the trigger on an M5 or M6, I stop because I am frustrated that Canon makes two compromises instead of duplicating the Sony A6000 series form factor (with the EVF built in and still maintaining the easier to stow in a pocket smooth/flat top).

I have an original M which is fine for stuff that doesn't move, but it's flat out torture trying to take pictures of kids with it which is my primary use.

Except Canon refurb has 1 year warranty and grey market does not.

Hmm. Very good deal specially since it comes with the EF to EF-M mount adapter from canon.

Paired with 1 year extended warranty from most Chase Credit Cards, should be good for AT LEAST 2 years.

I clearly said MOST. Not every Chase Card will have it. An no, "items from auction sites such as eBay are not covered" as per Chase Card Benefit Administrator terms.

In fact, a lot of major credit cards have extended warranties in addition to manufacturer's. SOME Citi Credit Cards add an additional 2 years to any manufacturer warranty. I would use a Citi Card for this, but unfortunately I am trying to get 5 Chase Cards before I apply anywhere else.

Anybody have any opinion on this vs the SL2?

SL2 costs less new and seems to compete pretty strongly against the m5

So close to buying this. Do you guys think it will be in sale on BF for cheaper? Last year they had the M3 for $350 I think with adapter.

Does the SL2 have the touch to drag af feature when you look thru the viewfinder?

This won't apply to most, but BA has double rewards when going through their shopping site. I think this will give 6 * $728 = 4368 Avios, which is more than enough for a free flight at the lowest tier.

This guy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhHpV0kc7as) is one of the more significant Canon reviewers (it seems) and his camera review's tend to be pretty critical. However, he speaks pretty glowingly about the M5. Even bought one himself. "Finally a Canon mirrorless worth owning." "Not super at any one thing, but really good at everything, and reliably so." Basically an 80D in a much smaller package (though it isn't weather-sealed, has a smaller buffer, etc.). Mike Drew and the pro that he does his review with also give surprisingly high marks to the M5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBNjn1g1LbY

For the price, and for all that this camera can do, this seems like a great deal, especially if you have EF and EF-S lenses.

Note that this should get Magic Lantern support before too long, too, which would make it even more capable on the video side.

I did just notice that the M5 offers 49 AF points vs. just 9 AF points for the SL2. It also has in-camera stabilization (digital IS with 5-axis stabilization, the first EOS camera, DSLR or mirrorless, to offer this) and a high-resolution EVF that apparently works really, really well. For continuous shooting, the M5 is rated at 9fps and the SL2 only at 5fps.

Big pro of the SL2 over the M5, aside from price, is much better battery life (based on ratings, at least) and what I think is a more useful reticulating screen.

Size & weight are not significantly different, neither offers 4k video (though that might eventually come with Magic Lantern), neither is weather-sealed. On price, it seems the SL2 wins, but the better AF and the image stabilization are good reasons to consider spending a little more.
