I have one set of DuraAce SPD-SL pedals and a set of 105-style SPD-SL pedals. The 105's are definitely a little harder to get in / out of than the DuraAce pedals (same shoes), but it's not "impossible" to the point that the OP is talking about here. Both pedals are set to moderate tension. The DuraAce pedals have a LOT more miles than the 105 pedals.

I switch out cleats periodically and I just "go"; doesn't seem to require much, if any, "break in" time.

I concur with the other suggestions of putting a little dab of grease on the pedals and trying again.
