The combination of A57 and Sigma 150-500mm works well for me. In addition you can use the clear image zoom feature in the A57 to get double the focal length with less loss in IQ than you would if you use a Teleconverter. Look at this link:


Important thing is to get in a bit of practice with this camera+lens combo as it can be quite heavy.

A tripod is not practical inside the safari vehicle so take a bean bag to rest the lens on.
