Any difference between 2001 and 2003 DA crankset?bikeridah

Have there been any substantive changes over the years that would make more recent DA cranksets a better choice (perhaps Octalink)? I would use with my 2001 Ultegra bottom bracket, is the splining the same? Thanks for any input here.
different next year...C-40

Shimano cranks that are not JIS square taper are octalink splined. Octalink splines are all the same.

Next year will be a different story. The new DA crank will be similar to the new XTR mtb crank. Totally different spline.

Dura Ace cranks is that the 2003 has that stupid octalink stamp on it. The 2001 is plain.
