Now that 2022 is in the books, it's a good time to look back at the year that was for Nikon – and what a year it was! 

If you’re a Nikon wildlife or sports photographer then 2022 will have no doubt been one of the most exciting in recent memory, with no fewer than four outstanding super-telephoto lenses released throughout the year. This began with the Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S in January, the Nikon Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S in April, Nikon Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S in June before the Big N rounded off the year with the Nikon Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S in November.
