Get her the Xvario. Its probably a tool she can use and appreciate. Video is supported too and u dont have to worry about buying lens, its comes with zoom lens.

As the output matters for modern journalist,  apart from her trusty canon, the xvario will be practically fine.

Film m7,m6 etc, imho is just not practical for her budding career and perhaps those are better served as commemorative gifts to be admired and once a while indulge in the process.

M9, M 240, imho, these are costly and hence using it in the field might distract oneself too much as a first time owner, the thought of scratching one or losing it..... best left for those who loves range finder experience and could afford much slower pace in taking photos.
