    Nirmalji,
    a6500 is a fine camera and also the kit lens. I just saw your query, otherwise I would have suggested you to get a6000 which is 1/3 the cost of a6500 and just 10% less features.
    I use a6000 and can vouch for it. It is a value for money camera.
    As far as lenses are concerned for a6300, just use the kit lens for few months. It is a fine lens and you may not need any other. If you think of adding other focal length lens or a faster lens and find the cost of Sony lens prohibitive, you can buy older cheaper Canon, Nikon or any other make lens with an adapter and use it with your camera.

    Thanks Henry sir...
    My a6300 comes with 16-50 kit lens only and I am also interested in bird photography occasionally (about 10-20% of total) and planning for a telephoto lens for the purpose but at same not want to spent a big amount on it , I don't know much about lenses so guidance from seniors is needed.

    You are welcome.
    Birds photography especially in the wild/forest is very expensive due to the cost of long focal length and fast (large aperture) lens needed to shoot small subject like birds. Photographing birds in captive like in the zoo or in the backyard with feeder is manageable and less expensive.
    Normally there are two types of bird photography. Birds which are sitting still and the other is birds in flight. The latter is much difficult and need a good auto focusing camera and lens.
    You can buy an old long focal manual lens of Canon/Nikon/Pentax/Minolta etc for cheap on ebay and use it with A6300 for birds not flying.

    It is higher quality only.
    Better learn to focus properly.
    Then shhhhhh
    Photoshop !
    LOL !


    I am same boat !
    First get expert in handling
    Focus, aperture, iso
    Try to play with these.
    You will see the difference after few months only.
    Post 1 pic to evaluate your work each day or week.
    You can see difference this way only.
