I (being a Java developer) also tried go recently. I totally agree with your points (pros and cons).
On the con side the ones which annoyed me the most were the missing equivalents to the Java Stream and Collection API. That results in a quite an amount of self-written (and most likely error prone) code to deal with basic things. Maybe there are libraries to overcome those shortcomings, but I don't know...
Love the type inference and the multiple return values, though!
