Nope. (Hate to sound so much like Mark--ho, ho!--but I'm very much following the same path in this regard.) I had a Oppo 85 and was totally satisfied with it, but after getting the Sony1000 did want something that also did 3d. So I sold the Oppo for a good price and got a Sony790 (~$170 IIRC). Also like Mark, I watched a coupled of 3d's but haven't any more for more than a yr (and doubt I ever will again). It sends 1080p to the Sony1000, which upconverts it to 4K. (And I also have a Darblet in the chain.) I would thus be just as happy to still have the Oppo85, but don't think I've lost any PQ by the switch.
If I had no BD player or Darblet, I might very well get the Oppo103D, even though it is probably ~$100-200 more than an inexpensive BD + Darblet. But I have little motivation to replace what I have until a 4KBD unit becomes available.
