Hey everyone, thanks for help!

I got an XSI body off craigslist for $300. That's been the going rate on ebay too, with an EF-S 18-55 adding $100 and themselves going for about that - which is what I'll probably get for her. Unless that 17-85 is reasonably priced.

30D was a close second choice. But my wife's coming from a Canon Elf and a bit intimidated by non-auto mode still. So that might have been too pro for her.

What I liked:
XSI has live mode shooting (though kinda odd to pull it up and focus vs 60D)
It's a reasonable small n light body.
Auto sensor cleaning
Not too old. (2 years ya?) 12 mp

She's happy.
