Coveting 500mm at a reasonable price

I would like a long reach to shoot wildlife. I think that means I need AF. Any opinions on the need for AF? I need to keep my solution $500 or less.

When I search BandH for 500mm E-mount or A-mount, I find some pretty pricy solutions. I have seen a 1.7x teleconverter (DCL-DH1758) mentioned in this forum, but I can't find it.

Is there any way to get a 500mm reach using this gear: NEX7. LA-EA2, SONY A70-300, SONY 35 prime, Tamron 18-200

Or, is there a reasonably priced lens that would give me what I need?

thank you for your help.
