Re: Please recommend older a-mount body for daughter

No mention of her age.  I don't think later SLT will be of any significant advantage for her, thus anything from the A200 - A580 range would suffice as they're all entry level bodies and no chance of any incompatibility issues if you want to bolt-on extras.  Also consider her hand and finger size and ease of use.  Even an older Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 5D would be fine if you're happy with the lower MP count assuming it's not more expensive than say an A300 which are pocket change at the moment.

Keep it simple and let her become more confident whilst you tutor her on the basics before making any further investment.  Just my 2 doubloons worth.
