    Yes its compatible. More or less any crankset is compatible any shifters/derailleurs. You can even mix 8 with 9, 9 with 10, 10 with 11. In theory, and maybe in practice, the electronic front derailleur likes a stiff chainring. The electronic front derailleur uses lots of force to move the chain and it works best if the chainring does not flex side to side.

    I run my Ultegra di2 with a 7900 crank and it actually greatly increases shift performance.

    Dura Ace 7950 compact crank arrived safely yesterday and fitted it to my Cervelo Rs last night but the weather is really filthy in Sydney at the moment so it might be a few days before I can post a pic but it only took about 5 minutes to swap out and install the new crank.

    First 60K ride with Dura Ace 7950 crank installed on my Cervelo RS with Ultegra Di2. As you can see it turned out to be a pretty good torture test, in that the ride included about 30Km of wet and very muddy track beside the Cook River here in Sydney which flooded and broke its banks during the heavy rains this week in my places leaving crap everywhere.

    Pretty good test of Di2 performance that that it never missed a single change even when the chain sounded horrible as it had so much dirt and grit in it. Di2 is amazing technology and worth every penny.

    Did you attach battery bracket with zip ties holding the cadence sensor? If so how is that holding up?

    No. The battery bracket screws onto the chainstay.
