Default S5000 Lens construction

I have discovered that the lens on the S5000 is simply a glass lens, un coated, and not aspherical. Unlike the S7000 which has Fuji's ElectroBond Coating (EBC) and is aspherical. How much of a concern is or should this be??

I own the S7000, but I have seen many shots, superb shots, with the S5000, so my quess is it is not effecting it much.

Aspherical lens should correct (a little) geometrical distortion (barrel or pincussion). S7000 still has those effects.
Uncoated lens will give you additional spots from light sources.
Also, some lens (moving parts) - are plastic (that explain fast autofocus). Problem is - low contrast in comparation with glass. This results in lower resolution (that would achieve glass lens)
