If she insists on a DSLR, and doesn't mind modern looks then she might be better served at looking at a D3200 kit. Just my two cents, but why would someone with no experience want to drop $2000-$3000+ on a FX DSLR? but then maybe she is considering it to be a Fashion statement.

The D5300 is much better camera than the D3200 — I used to own one — but I think the Df would have been my first choice for an upgrade (I got myself a D600, as the Df wasn't around yet).

Steve Huff writes than the image quality of the DF is the best he have seen, ever, not least in low light situations. So while it isn't the fastest camera in town, it is pretty impressive!

Your friend could do much worse than buy a DF, and I bet it will fetch a good price on the used market!

The lenses I recommend is the Sigma 35/1.4, and the Nikkor 85/1.8G, and then the lens that comes with the Df, that would be just fine!
