I switched from Sublime (which I loved so much that I bought it) to VS Code when it was released first and back after a few days. Like you said, it is fast, has a rock solid feature set and works great. However, if you want some advanced functionality, you need extensions, which are written in Python. I even wrote an extension myself to help my work. Still, Python and the bridge between those languages is obviously slower than a 100% C++ app.
