Several Nikkor DX lenses discontinued

A reader sent me this message regarding several discontinued Nikkor DX lenses (thanks ZoetMB): I was checking to see if any of the Nikon lenses that were out-of-stock at B&H a few weeks ago had come back into stock (none had) and I noticed that the following two lenses are marked “Currently Unavailable”, not “Backordered” or “More on the way”: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (currently unavailable) Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR  (currently unavailable) So then I checked the Nikon Japan site and they weren’t there. So while sometimes lenses hang around for years after Nikon stops selling them in Japan, this could still be a sign that they’re discontinued or going to soon be. So then I decided to cross-check every lens, and I found all of the following (in addition to the ones above) are no longer on the Japan website: 70-300 AF 4.0-5.6 G (but this has been off the Japan site since at least three years ago and Nikon didn’t include it in the 10/2017 lens catalog. Yet it’s still in stock at B&H and others
