Some perspective

On the same machine, creating a plain object, default constructor, not setting any fields or invoking methods, dodging the GC, single thread, and subtracting any other code takes about 7 nano seconds per object (tested 100k iterations).
Of course, in real life you have more stuff involved in object life cycle.
