I've just come back from using a 5DII for the first time alongside my normal $70k videocamera/lens set up. I love the 5D shallow depth of field look, but it is much harder work for focus/sound/long shots and general practicality than a dedicated video camera. As someone else has suggested it would be well worth looking at an EX3. It's also more of a sweat to get the material in to edit with . I do think it's worth involving your daughter in decision: good time to start making her own decisions and trade-offs. Generous and thrilling gift on your part.
