Unless you can find NOS on ebay, I'd try the Microshift. If your 10 speed stuff has a lot of use, the 105/7000 group would be a couple of hundred less than Ultegra and still very nice.

On one bike I swapped the 50 for a 46, so 46/34. Works for me because I mostly coast down the hills. I'm not perceptive enough notice it made much difference overall, I'm fine with either.
