I can understand your excitement with a new projector, but let's be honest it's basically the same projector as the 5040. Any perceived differences in brightness, contrast and black level are probably due to the software and not the hardware. When calibrated they measure exactly the same. The only meaningful additions are the 18Gbps chipset and the HDR slider. The HDR slider is really convenient for novices, but you can achieve the same result with custom gamma curves.
