    Hello Pete, welcome.

    As to which lens, which bird- or how close can you get? Generally the bigger the better for wildlife. You should have at least 200mm. For new lenses start with B&H. You can find a link just up the page from here.

    For used start with ebay. good luck

    hello mate,

    If you ever need a telephoto lens its for wildlife....

    with nature, any nature... when you try and get close your subject run/flys away :(

    so basically get the best zoom/telephoto lens your budget allows.

    even a cheap 500mm lens will get better shots that an expensive 55mm one ;)

    It depends on your bucget. This http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/463465-REG/Sigma_595107_300_800mm_f_5_6_EX_DG.html is a great wildlife lens but I imagine $7000 is out of your budget. This http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/463463-REG/Sigma_727107_135_400mm_f_4_5_5_6_APO_DG.html is a good compromise but may be still out of your range. A third choice might be http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/489407-REG/Olympus_261056_40_150mm_f_4_5_6_Zuiko_ED.html but personally I don't think I would buy it. In general a budget would help in any recommendations.
