It matters enough for video production - particularly when different
lenses will be used in multi-camera scenes. If there's a visible
exposure difference between cameras/lenses, an extra layer of complexity
is added to the editing process. For still photos, it would make no
difference to the intended output, or is trivial to adjust in PP.
