I voted "yes" but its more complex than that, so a simple yes/no isn't really telling the tale.
If you only shoot in nice weather on a 100yd target range then no.
If you're never going to shoot in adverse conditions, no.
If you're never going to shoot after banging the setup around humping through brush & over rough country, no.
However, if you might depend on the scope to give you a great image, remaining precisely on target, after dragging up hill & down dale, & clambering through tree branches at sunset, into the setting sun when it's been blowing rain all day then yes.
