Boy, your priorities for choosing a camera are quite different than mine

But as some have pointed out a zoom lens might make her taste more success as a beginner and encourage her interest.

Of course.

But, since she's used to shooting digitally and posting to Instagram, I bet her interest in film fades fast.

Especially if stuck with a single prime.

Olympus 50mm f1.8 could be the cheapest system prime he could add to this, and one of the best. I would think he could find one for under $30

Seems he's not going for "cheap"...

He's going for "pretty".
