>Are you referring to resize the file in software ?

Yes. You can do it via the Adobe Digital Negative Converter, LR4 or ACR 7.

>than lossless compression RAW files?

Yes, but it's not as powerful or sophisticated. You can use the compressed option (which is lossy) vs. the lossless compressed option on the D800/e. There's a small decrease in file size, but not the dramatic one you can get with DNGs if you change both the compression method and pixel sizes. You can also use 12-bit mode vs. the default 14-bit one.
