As a plumber I'm very used to seeing O rings working perfectly for years on high pressure systems. Have confidence the seals will be fine.

And I have experience from my Nikonos days.  Periodic replacement and relubing is a must.

As a plumber, you can wait for the seal to start dripping a little before taking any action.  With underwater cameras and lenses, waiting that long results in ruined equipment.
