Product Life of a Nikon lens

I've been wondering what the product life of a popular Nikon lens is: not how long it can be used but how long between announcement of the product and announcement of its replacement.

For example, I have the 14-24 and 24-70.  I'm tempted by the 70-200 but a bit put off by its breathing (I rented one to see if it bothered me in practice and it did, a bit).  So my inclination is to rent when needed until the next generation of the 70-200.  This would mean renting 2-5 times a year.

Anyone know the product life cycle, or even where I might find announcement dates and hence do my own research?
