You have to be utterly desperate to want to go beyond 600mm, it's a specialised field, either the pictures will be abysmal or else the kit will cost an absolute fortune and be used with extreme care, and I don't think the demand is there yet....

If shooting for example small birds, then you'll need all the 'reach' you can get. Most often 600mm equivalent won't be enough (and 1200mm equiv. doesn't necessarily cost a fortune).
