I have run a 10 speed long cage 105 with 34 tooth cassette. When I used a 11-36 it required the b screw to be all the way in and sometimes I could still hear and feel the top jockey wheel hitting the cassette. It wasn't a big deal. If you dont mind fussing and spending some money you could go 11-34 on the cassette and get a TA inner ring for your crank of 33. They are the only available 33 tooth chainring in the 110mm bcd. It costs 30-40 bucks or so but 33-34 for your low gear would be almost touring territory.
