Help me shake the digital SLR camera body blues

About ten years ago, I was given a couple Pentax 35mm film SLR bodies, and some lenses, which I was happy with. Especially the SMC-M 50mm f/1.4 lens, with which I discovered bokeh and existing-light photography. But after a while, I got tired of having to store and process film, since I just put all the pictures into my computer anyway. So I got a *ist DS, since that was compatible with all my lenses. But my favorite prime lens has been turned into a zoom by the reduced sensor size. The closest equivalent I've found is the FA 31mm Limited, but that costs ~$1000 USD, and its not even f1.4, its f1.8. Given this issue, along with the fussiness of getting all the auto-exposure/focus stuff to work the way I want it to, and I'm really missing my film camera bodies. Or is there an alternative?

Can anyone recommend a good cheap second-hand DSLR, please?

I've offered to take some photos for a friend's website, and I need a good cheap DSLR. I know what I'm doing with a camera, but have never bought a digital SLR. I'm on a budget (say $200), so I'm going to look at the second-hand market (mainly eBay). I don’t need masses of megapixels or fancy extras, but I do need high-ISO capacity for indoor shots (hence a high-end P&S won't do). Does anyone have any recommendations, please? Perhaps something that was hot two or three years ago? (I'm in Greece so US-only offers are no good to me.) Thanks in advance.
