No. The new version would come with a 5-year warranty. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

ETA: I would be shocked if there were any difference in IQ between the two. Unless I heard of some kind of QC issues with the more recent copy related to its production being moved to Japan, it would be completely inconsequential.
