Hi,
for your first question there's a fast answer: Use None instead
of smth with Opacity
ContourPlot3D[f[x, y, z], {x, -5, 5}, {y, -5, 5}, {z, -5, 5},
Contours -> {-0.1, 0.1}, PlotRange -> All, ContourStyle -> None,
MeshStyle -> {{Red, Opacity[0.1]}, {Blue, Opacity[0.1]}}]
is incredible fast compared to your version.
For your second question, right now I don't see a faster way than you
suggested.
For your third question I would suggest that you check out the
MaxRecursion option. To let Mathematica subdivide regions with
complex structures is very often better than just increase the plot-
points.
Plot[Sin[x^2], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotPoints -> 5, MaxRecursion -> #,
Mesh -> All] & /@ {3, 10}
Cheers
Patrick
