No, it matters not one bit (to me, anyway). As much as I'd like a few more "new" lenses in my arsenal, I'd rather go with refurbished or used but well-cared for lenses to save the bucks. As for servicing, I have never, in 50 years of photography, needed a lens serviced. So "support" or availability of parts has never been an issue. I suspect that the older lenses are likely built better than the newer ones, anyway, and will probably last longer. I'm speaking about Nikon/Nikkor lenses and not the "third-party" brands, which ARE made better today than they have been in the past.

With more people moving over to mirrorless the market will be awash with second hand DSLR optics.

I agree. The dSLR camera is not going to disappear overnight but more and more photographers will choose mirrorless.

If you look at the list of lenses for Sigma, most of those lenses were already discontinued-some for many years. Not necessarily news.

With all these lenses being discontinued just what do they plan to replace them with?

Pretty sure Sigma discontinued the EX series quite some time ago. I believe the Art series replaced the EX .

The age of the DSLR is over. The time of the MILC has come!

Totally agree. I have accumulated a dozen DSLR lenses, mostly Nikkor/Nikon through the used market and will continue as needed. Most of my lenses and also DSLRs have not been produced new in years but I purchase them in like new or excellent condition. Thanks to the mirrorless craze the market is flooded with great DSLR gear at great prices.

It will probably make the existing F mount Nikon lenses stabilize in value. In the future they may rise in value, especially for IR photographers, as the hot spots in the S-Mount Nikon lenses are really prominent.
