I feel the only advantage it has over a 5dmk3 is its beautifully clean shadows and the ability to lift those shadows. I cannot really notice the higher DR recorded by DXO

You actually did notice. The supporting evidence is in your first sentence. The higher DR is the result of the lower noise in the shadow levels. I don't believe it came from higher headroom.

Indeed, I feel the highlights are rather compressed compared to the Canon sensor. It is rather easier to clip the highlights beyond recovery on the 800's Sony sensor. The shadows remain superior though and that is why I like to differentiate shadows from DR for practical purposes.
