Default Best Filesystem

Ive been running FreeBSD for years now and have only now on my file server noticed something.

When using UFS2 after the drive is prepared. fdisk,label, etc
i loose a hell of alot of space.

To give example:
a 750Gb drive UFS2 useable space = 609Gb+-
NTFS usable space = 698Gb
ext3fs useable space = 680Gb

please note figures are +-

This is making me wonder if it's not best to use ext3fs in FreeBSD rather than UFS2? What is the performance difference between them? Any input on this issue?
