Thanks, there is definitely some misinformation out there on the subject! Guess I'll keep some of my old campy-10 wheels. Have decided to go with Ultegra DI2 so that's great.
Can you say the cassette cog spacing is identical between campy 11 and shimano 11? Or is it just an insignificant difference?
The problem for Shimano-made hubs is that their DS flange is about a mm further to the right than a Campy hub.
Shimano's 11 spd cassette is wider than their 10-spd, but the same width as Campy's.
In going to 11, there was not enough space on their 10-spd freehub, it needed to be lengthened, but to prevent interference with the frame, they lengthened the spindle by 1mm on the DS.
Hence the problem for Shimano hub owners - it's not just a simple matter of changing the freehub, the spindle needs to change too.
Here too is where all the "dishing" anxiety comes from, although it only moves the center of the wheel 1/2 a mm to the left so I think it's a little overdone.
Most (not all) non-oem hubs used a Campy-like flange spacing in order to offer both freehubs. So no spindle problem for them, and no dish worries. If Shimano 11 is not offered by one of these folks then Campy will work fine.
The compatibility question has been thoroughly answered by now - the 11-speeds are completely so.
