Much depends exactly what the differences are and whether it effects image quality. If all goes well future tests (if anyone does them) will show the new lens is a least equal to the lens it replaced or hopefully a bit better. As the old lens is generally regarded as very good that remains to be seen though. I’ve taken many thousands of photos on cameras without any form of weather sealing. Would this feature now temp me to go out and take pictures in the pouring rain? No, after 50 years I still don't want to get wet taking pictures. Now, if I lived in a country like Bahrain that would be a different matter.
