what would you suggest to a first timer who wants to spend 1500?

A friend asked me about buying a new camera one body and one lens under 1500, and i had a hard time recommending something. I am a Nikon lover with over 15k worth of equipment but not sure of the lower end.

i had a hard time beating the canon 50d + 17-40, which seems great and inexpensive compared to any nikon combo. IF i here to put together a combo for under 1500 i guess it would be d90 + 35/1.8 + 85/1.8 but this kind of setup is not for everybody, especially beginners. i was thinking of the 16-35 VR plus D5000?
