I had one 17-55mm 2.8 DX lens sent to Nikon Centre because it had issues with blades. I was informed that they no longer take the lens for repair/service since it is too old and the lens was discontinued. I am afraid, the same will happen to 17-35mm if I bought one.

Since the 17-35mm 2.8 is still in Nikon's current lineup, repairs should not be a problem. I recall reading somewhere that Nikon services lenses for 5 years after a model is discontinued. . . But I may not be remembering correctly so it's worth confirming it.

If Nikon won't repair a lens due to its age I suggest contacting APS (which I mentioned earlier) since they will repair gear that Nikon won't as long as parts are available.
