Several sites (e.g. https://petapixel.com/2021/05/12/nikon-has-discontinued-several-f-mount-lenses-report/ )are reporting that Nikon has discontinued 7 lenses. Disappointing.

  • AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4G ED VR,
  • AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR,
  • AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2G ED VR II,
  • AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR,
  • AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR, and
  • AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR

There's a lot more in life to be disappointed about than that.

Only one on the list I'd ever consider would be the 200 f2 VRII and I've been down that road, and it was a dead end.  I bought a used, but brand new one, never out of the box, for under $4000 Cdn, when it was over $8000 in the store.  Could never find a use for it and after using it 3 or 4 times, re-sold it for a profit.  The GAS for that lens is gone.

And all of those lenses will be available on the used market for years and years.  Best way to buy, IMO, anyway.

A Canon G5 and a bit of Nikon gear.
I enjoy my Nikon gear. But as has been pointed out to me "it’s a declining, decaying system based upon ancient technology" Funny that, never noticed.
