Use Olympus 4/3 gear. A 200mm lens on a 4/3 body provides the same fov as a 400mm lens on a FF body. Here's what to get...

Olympus E-5 $1549

Olympus 50-200 swd lens $1199 (and 4% store credit)

Olympus 1.4x teleconverter $429

Total $3187. I used this same lens combo with the older Olympus E-620 body to get these shots.

But the E-5 has much better AF speed and accuracy.
