Re: As someone who owns both the 5D3 and D800, I'd say no

6. In terms of file size, the main advantage of the 5D3 is SRAW.

Perhaps.  But last I looked Canon does not have lossless compressed options.  Lossless compressed format on Nikon brings your file size down to a little of 50% of the original RAW file.  Canon's sRAW1 is a little under 50%.  Of course, sRAW2 is even smaller.  But sRAW is not fully RAW.  You lose a bit.

I'd rather have Nikon's lossless compressed, which I use all the time, to Canon's sRAW.
