I think you might struggle to get up to 600mm, I can't actually find a Sony fit lens that is that long. I'm sure one probably exists just not sure I'm looking in the right place.

Value for money wise I think you would probably have to stick with Sigma and go for something like the Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM which retails new at about 750.00.

Lenses get very expensive when you start going for really long Zooms.

I am sure there would be a physical photo store in Cardiff, I'd go there with teh camera and that lens and would enquire about a teleconverter. That wouldn't break the bank as a very long zoom lens woyuld do. In fact with the change you can buy an ice-cream (shop).

There are two long lenses that are both cheap and good quality - the Minolta 100-400mm APO and the Minolta/Sony 500mm f8 reflex. These both deliver very high quality images. They're cheap because they're relatively small aperture - which is less of a problem nowadays with modern AF systems and high sensitivity sensors. They each cost between 300 and 400 on ebay or dyxum. You won't find a 600mm for sensible money. The cheapest way of doing this (and getting decent quality) is a Minolta 300mm f2.8 with the matching 2X TC, but this won't leave much change from 2000.

I'd steer clear of Sigma stuff on Sony DSLR/SLTs - see the Dyxum lens guide for why. Another possible is the Tamron 200-500mm which is more expensive and harder to find - also pretty big.
