Normally, if someone is looking to get in to photography, I recommend a D200. A nice example of a pro grade body can be had with a decent lens for just slightly more than the price of that D40, that is built for double that shutter count. It's not a point and shoot although it can nearly be in program mode, but if you want a point and shoot or something they can use to take pictures of their friends as opposed to something to LEARN photography, you're better served with just that.

Please link the OP to where he can get a D200+lens for the price you mentioned.

While I won't link to Fleabay auctions here, you can buy them all day long for just slightly more than the D40 they're looking at. Body only for $195. 2 lens kit for $275. Etc, etc, etc.
