New Fujifilm 35mm f/2 lens vs. the R WR version

Looks like Fuji's new 35mm f/2 lens is going to be available starting tomorrow.  It has the same number of aspherical elements as the existing prime, but it's missing weather sealing and an aperture ring.  It's $200 vs. $400 for the older one.

I'm new to Fuji cameras, so I have a couple of questions.  Would you expect the optical quality to be equivalent?  That is, are you only paying for weather sealing and the ring with the more expensive camera, or is it more "pro" in other ways?

Anyone planning on getting the newer, cheaper version?
