    Next lens after 70-300 for wildlife?

    Last year my wife got me a 70-300mm sigma lens for my canon t2i, it's been fine but I like shooting birds and 300mm doesn't always get in close enough to something that's really far away.

    I've been digging around for an affordable lens (less than $1,000) that goes from maybe 300mm - 600mm but I can't find one, does such a lens exist? I've been thinking about a 2x teleconverter instead but that has the drawback of losing 2x light.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Using a Canon T2i with either the stock lens (18-55mm) or a sigma 70-300mm

    PHOTO EDITING NOT OK
    I have both the Tokina 500mm and Sigma 600mm f/8 mirrors. They're long out of production, but can still be readily found used on ebay.

    You may look into a 1.4x or 1.7x teleconverter.... give you a bit more reach, and less light loss.
    Sick of all the spam and advertising. I'm done here.
