depends on your priorities and WHICH 4k led you get(i mean there's a reason some are a few hundred and some are several thousand dollars)
personally, i haven't been looking actively since i bought the f8500, but i have not seen an LED i would replace it with, 4k or otherwise. for me the uniformity is a major deal breaker, and this is true of EVERY led i've seen unfortunately. i guess it's just one of those things. i don't understand how ppl obsess over dithering, or heat but it bugs some people. for me, i can't see past poor uniformity, i've actually returned 'high end' edgelit led's(two of them before i gave up) and paid extra for a lower model ccfl version.
however, if the soap opera effect is your only issue with led, it's an easy fix, turn off that 'feature'. i also hate the frame interpolation stuff, it's always turned off on my displays(some plasmas come with this now too!)
the other advice i would offer is to seriously consider a projector, especially if you don't need a tv, you're just looking for an upgrade. adding a projector and roll down screen to your current plasma will provide a whole lot more 'wow' than any tv.
