Is there any noticeable difference in shifting? I'm going for a DA / Ultegra blend and while not concerned about weight, I will buy the DA-FD if there is a mechanical advantage. Comments?

Difference in shifting is probably imperceptable - FD is a "dumb" component that just does what the brifters tell it to do. After wear items (chain, cassette), the FD, then RD are the best places to "downgrade" a drivetrain with little/no loss of performance. Finish on DA is purtier, tho.
