See the feature comparison at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa700921.aspx

Basically, it lacks an optimizer and profiler.

are you developing a commercial application?
If not, why to bother about little performance difference?
If so, you can spend $100 bucks and buy the full compiler

That's a personal opinion ... It might be the best for you, but it isn't necessarily the best for everyone. I don't like it for example.
