I thought that was a great way for Snyder to show Superman is still learning to be Superman, and it's very evident if you watch the movie closely.

On a related note, I liked that Superman also didn't find anything easy.
Whenever he had to use his powers, it was obviously a great effort
(hence lots of grunting), which added to the tension/urgency in the film.

I always felt that Reeve's Superman was a little too effortless, whereas Cavill/Snyder's version was much rougher around the edges, and really had to push himself. When he was fighting in Smallville (for the first time ever in his life) he was really fighting for his life, there was a real sense of urgency.

Even when flying, it's not until the end that he is able to float off the ground, until then he has to hurl himself at the sky.
