What is your 'default lens'?

I suggest you try the Sony 55-210mm OSS: it's fairly cheap but has all the bells and whistles (AF, stabilisation, OK image quality). I doubt it'll be sufficient for subjects 1-2km away though: will be good only for identifying subjects. And then rises the question: do you need AF? If yes, your budget needs to be expanded considerably compared to the 55-210 and I doubt these options qualify as a 'cheap zoom len' to you. If no, maybe @XKAES can help you find a decent option.
