    as long as you're not intending to shoot at night or in low lights, afs 300 f/4 + 1.4TC (420mm @ f/5.6) or 1.7TC (510mm @ f/6.7) good enuff. i've used sigma 50-500 before, and compare to afs 300 f/4 prime plus TC, the latter still sharper and slight faster. 50-500 is slower and softer and heavier.

    GEt a 300 or 400 2.8 then add TC.
