I read the dp review on the 5N that she has and it's actually a pretty cool camera. I informed her about what she actually has and its capabilities (the very nice video features are what got my attention).. She is still interested in dslr/pentax and may still get one, but is going to spend some time with the 5N first to see what she thinks..

I noticed a K200D+Kit+FA50 for sale at a decent price in the market here today that's seems like it might fit...
I didn't look at the ad or the price, but that's sure a good setup. I still have my K200D and sometimes prefer it over my K-5 - at least in good light. Nice CCD sensor.

Nothing wrong with the K100D(Super) either, or the K-x(/K-r). I sure liked mine.

It's up to her, but I do think that once she starts putting better lenses on that smaller, unbalanced body she may wish she had a DSLR instead. Any brand would be OK, but it's hard to beat Pentax for value, and MF primes are both easy to come by and easy to use.
