Can someone explain to me what the benefit of the electric gears is? Just faster changing of the gears?

I can't afford it either, but the word I keep hearing is self adjustment and quicker shifting.

Quicker shifting and self trimming at the front.  Little benefit at the back.  In fact, at the rear Di2 is slower than Campag.
