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.

They are not. D600 ISO100 RAW is about 30mb, while 5D3's is about 28mb.

As it is, the CR2 files I am getting are 34-36 mb, so they don't look compressed to me.

check DPR's studio test scene. at iso 6400, D600 34mb, 5d3 33mb, D800 51mb.

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

That is in proportion to MP count.

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.

Did you really think you got 36mp resolution at every iso and with any lens?
