Please don't choose JSF with blind answer "Yes". JSF is real hot buzz word in J2EE community, so it may be easy for you to convince your manager/ boss with JSF selection.

My strong advice is: search for advantages and disadvantages of JSF. Make conscious decision that the JSF disadvantages are not going to affect your product business.

Some advantages that JSF carry :
1. Part of JSR.
2. Many open source communities working for it providing tools, enhancements, new features as requests in JSR.
3. You can find developed, reusable web GUI components from Apache MyFaces(Trinidad), Tomahawk. These GUI components have rich features, and extensible.
4. Now Facelets can be used to render GUI components in JSF. Facelets are really very interesting, very easy, no indepth knowledge of java,servlet,jsp needed if we use facelet.

I dont know about performance/business implications, but i found no such disadvantage for JSF, from my study.
As a develper, JSF are very much more comfortable to work with.
