However, I've noticed that it was released about ten years ago and has never been updated.

Is there likely to be a replacement for this in the pipeline? Is there a reason why an updated version was never released? Are there any more modern options that feature weather sealing?

IMO it is still one of the finest lenses Nikon ever produced, really it makes no difference that it's ten years old. Considering Nikon's attitude regarding DX and how they only want to sell FX bodies , I doubt if we will ever see an update to this lens.
