Naturally the blacks have to "jump" up a bit when it comes out of a total fade to black as there is a gap between total darkness and the darkest black floor the projector is capable of. However, this is only visible as a jump if the following scene after the fade to black is very dark. Luckily, many scenes following fades to black are bright, and in those cases it's a complete non-issue.
Personally though, I don't find it jarring even when the next scene is very dark and requiring the full black floor from the projector. The reason for this is that the LS10000 is capable of a black level that is deep enough to reproduce night scenes, or any other typical dark scenarios, good enough for it to look authentic. So whenever I am jolted back into the action, even to a dark scene, the black level does not feel fake, it just feels like the movie and story is continuing. I think this is something most people will get used to quite easily.
Of course I'd always like even better contrast performance, but I honestly feel the LS10000 is capable of blacks that are deep enough for the other qualities of the image it throws to start weighing more heavily in the equation.
