Why has Nikon not updated the 17-35mm/2.8?

I like this focal length for certain situations but the new digital sensors show the limitations of this lens design.  I have sent it into Nikon NPS for calibration and still do not get reliably sharp images with D810.

I have the 24-70 and it is tack sharp.  Very nice lens.

Canon is on the third version of the 16-35mm.

Why is Nikon neglecting this important focal range?

I had and sold the 14-24mm because I found the longer end to be a little short.

I would buy a new 17-35 G in a heartbeat.
