I was wondering if anybody is using one of the new Shimano FDs on their Campag groupset and having good results. I was wondering if it would produce better shifting, but then again there's not too much wrong with the campag stuff (Doesn't shift quite as well underload but mostly fine). Anyone have any experiences they want to chime in with?

Didn't use either, but if you're talking about pre-2014 Campy they are most likely incompatible. Shimano increased the cable pull for the FD and also the FD lever arm so the Campy left shifter does not pull enough cable to move the FD far enough.
I've seen a few Shimano 10 speed FDs with Campy systems work OK.

It works perfectly for me! Theres not much for trim position though, its much easier to pull on the big lever arm.

The new shimano front shifting is brilliant. I was wondering if that's down to the FD. I find Campy shifting a little lacking tbh, especially when dropping it onto the small ring under load.
