Nikon 17-35mm discontinued (officially)

Well, following our discussion in another thread, Nikon support officially just put an end to speculation about the status of the 17-35mm lens production. I asked them whether they have discontinued it (most dealers tell me so, and the lens is not even included in the Nikon UK pricelist at http://www.europe-nikon.com/support/en_GB/local/broad/371/1.html ) and this is the exact response I got (including grammatical errors):

"Thank you for contacting Nikon Support.

Information's what you have got from our dealers are correct. Lens Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S is discontinued and we don't have any information's about upcoming replacement.

All what I can suggest is to look with different dealers or go for one of our pro lenes which are:

1) 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S NIKKOR - more information about this lens pleas follow the link - http://www.europe-nikon.com/product/en_GB/products/broad/1430/overview.html

2) 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S NIKKOR - more information about this lens pleas follow the link - http://www.europe-nikon.com/product/en_GB/products/broad/1431/overview.html

If you require any further assistance, please update your incident and I will be happy to help you."

Well I guess it will either soon become a collector's item or they will eventually replace it with something similar.

Cheers
