Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
This Superman is someone who very much values human life. So if there's anything he can do to spare or save someone within his reach, he's going to do it. As they say...desperate times call for desperate measures. He did what he had to do, but he certainly felt sickened by it. Superman is the essence of morality...and when someone threatens people we hold dear, we'll do ANYTHING to prevent those people from being harmed, including ending another person's life.
And Reeve's Superman and Kidder's Lois each combined to kill Zod, Ursa and Non in Superman II. HERE, this scene was 1000% more potent. Cavil sells it. It's a beautiful scene. This moment, and the Tornado scene got to me the most.

For a "soulless" movie -- it certainly was beautiful and touching in many respects.
