Budget setup for wildlife, birds etc

I got sort of redirected here. Below is the same post from system buying advice.


I were sitting at my parents-in-laws summer cottage front porch drinking beer and chilling. I noticed some old canon with 600mm lens laying on the table and asked if i could play with it. I started to shoot little birds that were flying around near me. I were hooked immediately!!

Now i’m looking my own setup to start taking photos of wildlife and birds among other things.

I already own Sony a5100 for my companys purposes. I like the camera alot and i were thinking if there would be good setup for me in the Sony mirrorless range? For the budget, lets say 2500-3500€. (camera+lens)

I got an offer for:

Sony a6300
Sony sel70200g 70-200mm
Sony sel20tc
Everything new, 2500€

I don’t know much about these things.

I’ll add my very first birdphotos below. These are the ones i took with the Canon i mentioned

Sony a5100
