Lifetime of a lens (SEL35F18)

In the 'early' days, a camera and for sure a lens lasted for ever. I understand that a camera can have a failure or die, but what about modern lenses with stabilization?

Now I want to buy a Sony SEL35F18. Are these lenses very vulnerable? I ask because they are rather expensive...
