I performed a factory reset on my 55ES8000 after installing 1046, and I saw no difference in picture quality between before the update, after the update, or after the reset. I'm a videophile, I have a keen eye for this kind of thing. Had there been a change in picture quality, I would have noticed. All my settings are the same between now and before the update and after running all of my tests and calibration discs.
