    Good luck!
    will do so... thanks!!

    Depending on size of subject and lighting, a 400mm lens is a good choice. You can crop if needed, but you REALLY need to practice your panning.

    If you get a PnS superzoom, you can get decent shots too, but you need to learn how to pan.

    that is very far but it also depends on how your compose your picture, whether you going in tight or the otherwise.

    i say at least a 400/500mm lens, heck 600mm may not even be enough.

    for a start, the Sigma 50-500mm OS HSM comes in at around $2k and the 500mm prime is about $5.6k.

    both are grey sets from DDE, if you want local sets, be prepared to pay more.

    since i haven't gotten the necessary camera skills to fully utilize the dslr, does the A33 have something like an auto focus?

    sorry for asking really noob qns.. & thanks for ur help!
    If u got budget, go for A55. It costs 900$, and add in a 70-300mm lens, you are good to go. Total won't be more than $1500.

    My friend got the 70-300mm and he loves it to bits. He uses it for traveling.
