I have about 600 km on my Focus, and I haven't experienced any rough shifting, even at low speeds. From a standing stop, when I take my foot off the brake it seems to feather the clutch and creep forward smoothly, behaving just like a normal AT.

As mentioned previously, shifts occur at a relatively low rpm, for good gas mileage. When making a right turn from a stop, I find it hits 3rd before I've completed the turn. If I'm not watching for the shifts, I don't notice them.
