Most recommendations will come from what people own. I agree with what was posted earlier what glass does she have now? Then look to that brand. One thing to remember about 35 mm glass vs digital glass is your "old" wide angle will not be as wide because of the cmos chip is smaller than 35mm making a 28 about as wide as a 50mm. I shoot a Sony 900 which uses a full size chip with 25 mps. and my old glass (Minolta) works great. But the price of that camera is way out of your range. The latest digital slr's are now coming with the ability to shoot movies. I myself do not find this as a positive. I want to shoot stills. But I am in the vast minority on this issue. The other interesting problem is the moment you purchase what ever body it is obsolete. The technology moves very fast in digital.
