The performance of the compiled code is dependent on the compiler, I guess. I would assume that the compiler "drops" the unused imports.
As it comes to importing explicit classes/whole packages, well, it's a matter of taste, I think.
Importing each class explicitly offers the benefit of easier understanding of dependencies for a new developer.
On the other hand, having 50+ imports in the beginning of the source file can be annoying...
