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

The way I read these tea leaves, Nikon is done with DX on the DSLR side, and done with all non-pro level FX on the DSLR side, which probably leaves Nikon with just D850 and D6 going forward, and possibly their successors.

Not sure what to make of the 200 f/2. I'm guessing it was too low volume seller and not worth it to keep it going.

16-35/4 also doesn't quite fit the discernible pattern though... Probably just not all that popular, although a decent and useful lens overall IMO.
