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

Actually, Canon does not have uncompressed RAW. all canon RAW are compressed by default.

Sorry, but if CR2 is not uncompressed RAW then the uncompressed would be extremely bloated.  As it is, the CR2 files I am getting are 34-36 mb, so they don't look compressed to me.

Lossless compressed D800 RAWs come it at around 45-50 mb.

in fact 20mp is all that you will extract from D800 with less than perfect lens or with perfect lens but at ISO 800 upwards (give or take).

Not really sure how you come to that conclusion.
