I was deciding between 2 bikes (identical frame, but diff colour). One had 6800 and the other 5800. I chose the 6800 since I knew I'll get upgraditis within 2 months.

I've only used it twice and I like it more than my Di2 (cavaet: I did not program my Di2 shifting speed). I'm glad you can adjust the reach since I have shorter fingers.

Price jump from 105 to Ultegra is fairly small, not so when comparing Ultegra to Dura Ace. For me the price performance is easy to justify on Ultegra, but much harder on Dura Ace. I'd do the Ultegra in a hearts beat.

Comparing the two, it seems that front shifting is identical. Rear shifting has a slightly lighter button feel and slightly crisper on the 6800. But that may be because I have the mid cage on the 5800.

I really appreciate the hood shape on the new 105 vs the 5700 iteration.
