I think it depends. There are pluses and minuses for each. Campy can be rebuilt, but Shimano can't. Campy has 11 speed, Shimano only 10. Shimano has electronic shifting, Campy doesn't. Ergo is a personal thing, but I personally like Campy hoods better. Campy has that weird thumb shifter. Shimano has the paddle. Personally, I like the paddle shifter, but I don't dislike the Shimano version either.
I like either one really. I had a bike with Record group and it was great. My current "race" bike has all Dura-Ace. That works fine also. I will say I dislike SRAM stuff, so I would recommend that. Either Shimano or Campy I don't think you'll be disappointed.
