What long Lenses (above 200mm) are you using?

About a year ago I got fed up of waiting for the samsumg to release a 300 0r 400 lens and bought on ebay an old (70s) simple cheap 400mm prime, a Soligor preset appeture f6.3 which cost an incredable £34. My expectations were very low however with some care and experimentation got these images using my old NX10. Focusing particularly on birds in flight I find very difficult however the film photograpers produced good results so I guess its possible

Would welcome your comment or questions

Mostly would like to know if others are having success with longer lenses, to hear what you are using and see results. I have a feeling that currently whilst I like very much the NX system that without faster AF with tracking capability it is not a system suited to nature photography
