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.

The 17-35mm f/2.8 was recently discontinued, along will all other non-G, non-E lenses. The only lenses with aperture rings left in Nikon's lineup are the 24mm, 45mm, and 85mm PC-E lenses.
