I primarily use JPGs these days (although I still shoot RAW + JPG just in case). If I can get a quality image in JPG straight out of the camera then that saves me a tremendous amount of time in PP. A camera that can provide better results directly from the camera matters a lot (not $1500 mind you, but it is significant to me).

But you need to factor in that the 5D3 files use much more NR, look at these crops at 6400, 5D3 on the left. NR effects and artifacts reduce detail, so if you dial equivalent settings on both cameras, the results will be proportional to RAW differences, that's why looking at RAW is more relevant.
