According to Ming Thein, she should get it only if she:

1. wears horn-rimmed glasses

2. sips lattes in trendy cafes

3. takes pictures with it only occasionally

4. won't print

5. hasn't used a proper camera from the real film era

6. doesn't output sizes larger than what hipstagram requires

7. likes to wear it over their shoulder while looking cool

paraphrased from the Ming Thein Df review

Give her this checklist. Then get back to us with the answers.

I like DF by the way...don't really have anything against the camera.  Just like to laugh at some of the posers I see wearing them now.  Some of these people needed to drop $3K on some photography lessons...not a nice camera like the DF.

From my standpoint...give me a Nikon D90, some old AF-D lenses and I'll make it work with exception of some high action and/or low-light scenarios.
