    With that kind of budget, I suggest 2 bodies -- a Nikon N80 - lightweight and fairly fast AF, and able to take All AF lenses, add a second N80 body - or a used F4s or F100. Lenses: 24-85 mm f2.8-4.0/ 50mm 1.4/ 180mm 2.8. If she eventually goes digital, her lenses will still be useable on a lower-end DSLR. The F5 is overkill here. If she insists on a manual camera, then the F3HP and similar MF lenses are a good match. As a PJ, she may appreciate the motor wind on the AF cameras...

    The bottom line is that she will not be using any kind of film camera as a professional photojournalist, so the camera she chooses for her student work will only serve as a creative/learning tool.
    Speed Graphic. I've learned more shooting with mine then anything else I've ever used.
