My friend has a $500 budget for a Canon or Nikon DSLR

Maybe I can get her to spend a little more. I was thinking used Canon XSI body and a used Tamron 17-55mm. I told her to avoid the kit lenses and I assume she wants a zoom not a prime. My wife has an XSI, it's pretty good, but her 18-55mm is junky... So we'd rather go older used camera to get the next level of glass.

she is open to Nikon. Doesn't care if it shoots video.

Any other suggestions?
