It would be nice to have the 400mm reach, but at least on my nx100 I don't think it would be worth it and that's because of focus speed. If I was wanting a 400mm it'd be using it for wildlife work and for that autofocus needs to be fast and accurate, and unfortunately the nx100 doesn't cut it (in comparison to DSLRs). Maybe the focus speed has been improved a lot with the second generation? I don't know.

A 400mm would also be unwieldy (in terms of size and balance) on the nx100, 200/210, and 1000, although I suppose it might work ok on the nx10 and 20.

Maybe it's for these two reasons that Samsung hasn't brought it out.
