Hybrid Flex table performance vs standard table

If we are referring real columns only in a hybrid flex table - will there be any performance issues as compared to a standard table. I know that loading data from JSON would be slower as compared to CSV parser on a standard table. However for query performance - will there be any issues, are projections created will work equally good?
If we are not referring raw in a query - will there be any hidden storage cost associated with the query?

    There won't be any penalty. Real columns in a hybrid flex table act the same was as columns in a regular, columnar table. The server will choose real columns (over virtual columns) when available and their projections to process queries.
