Zoom for Sony a6000

Plane spotting and safaris, you're looking at least minimum 300mm. Consider a 2X tele-converter, but you will lose light and AF speed. I used to have one along with a 300mm and it was a ton of fun.

Mmmmm.... I walk trails all the time with an A77 body and an old A mount Sigma 50-500 lens (non stabilized) - a 7 lb combo. This 70-350 is a baby lens in comparison and with the itty bitty baby A6000 body on it, well, why bother with protein drinks for breakfast.Firebot wrote: ↑Oct 7th, 2019 4:56 pmhttps://www.thephoblographer.com/2019/0 ... y-e-aps-c/
You are not going to be walking around with this thing
Definitely a great option for you for the other things you want though. One thing of note, if you never used a telephoto zoom lens. You will likely realize quickly that a tripod or a monopod is needed for proper balancing and to prevent movement, and that you will need optimal lighting to get a great shot.
