try those 400mm f5.6 pk mount lens, from tokina or vivitar, around 200 USD;

and good and light (1kg), 300mm f4 lens tends to be expensive than 400mm f5.6;

or try 500mm f8 or 800mm f8 mirror lens from Samyang.

The OP said he wants an A lens, and I can understand why. I was walking along a bush trail yesterday with the A*300, and depending on which direction I pointed the camera, exposures varied as much as 4 stops. Having to use the Green button is no big deal on static targets, but that extras step is a handicap with wildlife.
