Current/Future Classics - lenses to hold their value...

So as with most things tech - cameras these days devalue relatively quickly, and are often completely replaced over a 2-3 year period...hence the conventional wisdom that it is better to spend the $$ on high quality lenses as they will keep their value far better. Some people even talk about them appreciating in price...
With that in mind - what would you consider to be some of the future/current classics out now that are most likely to hold their value the best over years of usage? Not necessarily just NIKON lenses, but lenses for use with Nikon FX...Manual focus or Auto, zoom or prime (although I would imagine more of these will be primes then zooms...perhaps 14-24 excepted!)

A few suggestions I might make to kick start the debate...
Nikon 105/135 F2 DC

Sigma 35 1.4 Art Series

Nikon 58 1.4

Zeiss 135/2

What else would you consider to be in this bracket??
