People who have come to BI's engine thanks to DayZ probably expect some huge improvements to the engine for the standalone, but they don't realise that when BI say they're going to make improvements it's all very understated.
The main enhancement of note is switching the majority of the game to the server. That's going to eliminate a large amount of the hacking that goes on in the game, which will definitely contribute to the overall enjoyment. I don't think that aspect will be understated.
If anyone is expecting a large improvement in the visual aspects, then yes, they will probably be left wanting.
