As someone said in a Small Arms Review of the pre-production 433, there's only so many ways to make a modern modular rifle, unless you go bullpup. It also doesn't help that the G36 and the SCAR have influenced so many rifles that aren't AK or AR-15 based.

The 433 owes a lot to the G36 and the SCAR. The ACR owes a lot to the AR-15 and G36, and even the SCAR owes a lot to the G36, FN FNC and Steyr AUG.

And I think we're kinda stuck in the AR-18/G36, SCAR, AK and AR cycle of things until metallic cartridge rounds get replaced with something else.

Not enough to make up for the capability that you'd lose. Hit the weights, grandpa.

I'd be happy with the 16.5 variant, a decent optic and iron sights, and a bayonet.

Part of me is old school and say drop the optic and use the iron sights, but we've known that for more than 100 years that no matter how good irons are, most people in an army of average attainment, including volunteers, generally can't hit shit beyond 100-150 yards with the unaided (or some would say untrained) eye.
