Could anyone tell me what, other than weight, are the differences between 105 and Ultegra shifters?

After going between my 105's and my SRAM Force on my other bike, I find a lot about both to like, but the one thing that bugs me (other than the hood design) on the 105's is the somewhat cheap feeling of the inside lever, and all the freeplay that's built into it before you actually hit the shift point. I was curious if the Ultegra (or DA) levers are any different as far as feel goes.

As a mechanic in a LBS, IME, the shifting quality between 105 & Ultegra is just about nil. Now stepping up to DA is totally different. Much shorter throws and to me much more precise.
