Evernote 5.0: Sluggish?

I've never used Evernote until version 5.0, and I had high hopes for this beautiful app, until I started typing a long note. I've noticed the app slowing down a lot and the typing response is delayed.

Also, it takes a considerable amount of time to load and quit the app.

By the way, I only have 15 notes (all text) and just 1 notebook.

Those using Evernote 5.0, are you experiencing a similar issue or has it been running fine for you?
