9-speed. I've read from possibly dubious sources on the web that the Shimano and Campy 9-speed cassettes are close enough that shifting works very well. Can others confirm? Specifically, I have access to an inexpensive set of campy wheels that I want to use with my ultegra setup. Thanks in advance.

For perfect shifting, use a Jtek ShiftMate (http://www.jtekengineering.com/shiftmate.htm).

Not quite a direct answer to you questions (as this thread deals with Campag shifting on Shimano cassettes), but will give you an idea.
Campag cassettes (9s and 10s) are very slightly wider - you may have to respace slightly with some Shimano spacers to get it closer.

Thanks guys. Bike_13, your answer on the other thread hit the nail on the head. However, why mess with Shimano 8-speed spacers? Can't you simply pick up some Campy spacers and solve the problem?
Unfortunately the people that make these spacers tend to be very proud of them.
