For how long does a lens last?

Let's say the Sony 85 1.8 as an example, or the Zeiss Batis 85 1.8. Both really good lenses, yet two different price points.

Lets say that you don't use the lens in any heavy rain or any other "bad" conditions, but you use them often and alot.

How long can one expect a modern lens to last? The glass should probably last very very very long, but how long before you have to do service on the lens? And of course, if we count on no external damage to the lens. Just from usage.
