This is not for me, this is for my father who is looking for a
body/lens combo in the $1000 - $2000 range.

In that case you should have put $2000 total Lens+Camera.

You like Canon Get the Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi digital camera around $800
Your Farther wants a longish zoom Get Canon EF 70-200mm F4 L non IS $600

Add a larger CF card and a lens Filter you in in budget. If you can talk your farther into blowing the 2K mark make the 70-200 the IS one about $1200
