Can I suggest an Olympus OM-4 Ti if she wants to ditch her Canon kit entirely. It has manual and aperture priority modes, muti-spot metering, off-the-film flash metering and very simple and intuitive controls. The body and lenses are compact and relatively light but with one of the biggest and brightest viewfinders ever in a 35mm SLR making focussing with the manual lenses very easy. They have a large range of excellent, sharp, high contrast lenses available with many focal lengths going to f:2. The 85mm f:2 is a superb portrait lens, slightly softer than most Olympus lenses with a lovely bokeh. I have found these cameras to be extremely reliable, the one thing to watch for being the foam seals becoming gooey on the older ones though it is pretty simple to replace these at home with a seal kit.
