That's what I don't think will hold true. In the coming years the lifecycle of a lens will not be that much longer as more and more software is introduced into the lenses themselves. There's only so much you can do with firmware upgrades.

You might be right there - and its a pity. One example is that many modern lenses dont have any aperture ring. Makes them rather useless in man adapter scenarios, although Novoflex has aperture support for Pentax KAF in their adapters.

You don't see it much yet but it will happen soon and rapidly I think.
