According to the Campy web site, the QS left hand Ergo shifter will have an easier actuation force than current levers and the front derailleur will be reworked to go along with the reduced effort.
BTW, all of the groups below Chorus will also have right side (rear) shifters with the "Escape" mechanism which means you won't be able to do multiple upshifts (from larger to smaller cogs) in one mouse-ear push the way current shifters will. You will be limited to a one cog change per push the way Shimano has always been. Chorus and Record will retain the multiple upshift ability and, of course, multiple downshifts with one sweep of the inner lever will be retained by all groups.
