Having tried both, the a65 is a clear step up (also in terms of bulk I think, so to be tried). The EVF, especially, is a winner. I really like the EVF of the a58 (biggest pro for me with iq) but the a65's is just better. It felt bigger to me.

overall it comes down to how much he values additional features such as the electronic level and GPS. I'd love to have them but here the price difference was too big: a58 + 3 lenses cost me less than a65 body only.

Looking at UK prices on amazon, I can see a58 kit at 320, a65 body at 510, a65 kit at 580. Plenty of margin for a telephoto.
With the price difference between a58 and a65, you can probably get a tamron 17-50. Unless he can consider second hand bodies, I think that's a good combo.
