I'm intrigued by the new shifting interface, lack of shift cables and interchangeable individual component batteries. Plus, i find SRAM hoods more comfortable.

I moved from sram to di2 last year. it's awesome. not light, but works flawlessly. I was looking at the sram etap as well, but didn't want to buy the first run. the sram red first run had some issues.

eitherway, it's a great way to go. the di2 battery lasts for a month or so before needing recharge. front derailleur trim is automatic. I also love that I can control my garmin from the hoods.

with sram you don't have to worry about routing wires. but I think options are limited for remote buttons.
