MIFSUDS have a Sony A100 for £199.00 by all accounts this was an absolutely superb camera, with DoF preview lots of comments at www.dyxum.com  Can use minolta A Mount lenses stick a F4 beercan on it (my fave lens) and you're well away....and if the rumours are true Nikon use Sony sensors so basically it's the same as buying a Nikon  :P

And thus begins the flamewar  ;)

As Oldboy always says there is no such thing as a bad dslr, why not go along to a camera shop so she can see what feels right in her hands, that's the advice we tend to give everyone who asks this q....

Dunno where you are in the country but there are 3 camera fairs coming up (my weekly copy of AP has just landed)
Wolverhampton Camera Fair Sunday 27th November Dunstall Park Racecourse www.camfair.co.uk 08:30-10:00 £7.00 or after 10:00 £3.00,
Camerafair Potters Bar Sunday 20th November , Elm Court Community Centre, Mutton Lane EN6 3BP 9:15 - 10:00 £4.00 after 10:30am £2.00 Peter Levinson 0208 205 1518
Camera Fair Manchester Sunday 13 November Shaw Hall Centre Church Road Flixton nr Urmston no admission prices listed or opening times but contact no is 07979913156

Maybe go along to one of those if you can, you never know what you might find

Quite right Keith, but the only reason I suggested the D70 was price and the fact dad's got Nikon lenses.  8)
