I appreciate this is expensive for a set of pedals to those that don't take their cycling seriously, but for those that do, this is a great deal. These are only about a tenner more than the 105 pedals and are lighter plus stainless steel spindles, plus they come with a set of cleats which are usually around £15.
Just replaced my old 105s with these and now matches my new Ultegra 6800 groupset.
Shimano Clipless SPD-SL 6800 Ultegra Pedals
The short carbon fibre body construction offers low weight, is super stiff and offers efficient power transfer. The PD-6800 features many of the same technologies as the flagship Dura Ace pedals with the PD-6800 only weighing 8g more.
