'04 10spd Campy Chorus Shifters compatible w/ new Campy??

I posted this in the Roadie forum as well, but may have better luck here, anyway:

I've got a nice set of paid for 2004 Campy Chorus 10spd Ergo shifters that I'd like to use in the near future and have read that pre-Quick Shift era shifters work better with pre-Quick Shift era front derailleurs (Campy Quick Shift started in 2007). So I'm now on the lookout for a Campy 10spd front derailleur from 2004-2006.

Besides the front derailleur are there any other 2007-2008 10spd components (crank, rear der., cassette, chain) that I should be concerned about if using my 2004 Chorus shifters?

If given a choice, I'd rather just get 2007-2008 Campy as it's easier to find.

Thanks

I think you will be fine with the rest of your drivetrain, competitive cyclist has some older front derailleurs (record through centaur) on sale right now 2006/05 vintage I think, which should work fine.

Its a little bit of personal preference but I don't like the quick shift on the left ergo. I have two road bikes, one with quick shift and the other with 2006 parts and quick shift is fine but there is something about about the feel of it that goes beyond crisp to me and is a little too sharp. I don't notice anything on the right side and I don't think I really should.

Thanks. It always helps to info from people who've ran into the same situation.

Anyone got a 2004-2006 compact specific Campy front der. they're looking to part with?
