Tried the new changes and I'm completely reinvigorated to play RO2 once again. The first iteration of sprint to iron sights transition so far are great, didn't think Tripwire would nail it that close on the first attempt.
As far as zoom is concerned (ah, the age-old debate), I'm fine with it. Especially since there were complications that would greatly disservice affected players and literally break the game for them. If you can't shoot at what you're aiming at in a FPS game, it is broken.
Also, I'm old and I don't enjoy the pixel hunting I did for nearly seven years with Ostfront. I'd like to maintain my eyesight for the coming years.
