Campy and Electronic Shifting

A while back, Shimano came out with their DI-2 electronic shifting system, which was met with pretty good reviews. People I know who have it have no complaints. Campagnolo recently announced that they are also releasing an electronic shifting package for their 11 speed group.
   The biggest claims by Campy are that it shifts faster than a mechanical system, and shifts under higher torque.

Price is supposed to be on par with Shimano's system, which is still pretty steep at around $4k for everything. Little fact from the Bicycling review, '...it took all three spots on the Tour de France podium this year.' Pretty impressive roll out!
