V-brakes with cantilever brake-levers?

I want to upgrade my front brakes to LX V-brakes. I asked my LBS what
levers they recommended, and their response was that the diacompe
levers I currently use with my cantis will work perfectly. He said
that they have set up more bikes this way.
I like the idea 'cause the V-brake levers I've seen are much shorter
than the levers I use now, and I don't like that with my Gripshift.
Do I really need new levers when I upgrade to V's ?
Thanks for your response!
