I've googled a bit but most posts are about simply adding Origin to Steam and then renaming it to "Battlefield 3".

Thanks
Nope, you have to run Origin to run BF3. I don't know why people are so resistant to Origin, I mean it's not that bad. Just add BF3 via Origin in Steam, disable Origin overlay, and you won't even notice the service is running. It will act just like a Steam game.

The only bad thing is when you quit BF3, you will have to quit Origin, otherwise Steam will still report you as playing BF3.

EDIT: sorry for ninja edits

Origin is getting better. The install process is much smoother now with less user interaction. More Apple and Steam like, the way it should be nowadays.
Still, in my opinion, Origin is just an unnecessary additional layer.

I was hoping I could get around it by directly starting Battlelog in Firefox but it still launches Origin for no reason at all.
No problem.

Origin is to BF3 like Steam is Steamworks games: DRM. BF3 requires Origin to play, because that's what makes sure you can run the game. I agree that Origin is an unnecessary layer, but from EA's standpoint it makes sense. They have a large library of games, and this allows them to release updates and things on their schedule, without Valve's approval. That saves time and money.

Well, you missed multiple sales over the past few months. Limited Edition was $50 at one point, and I've seen the regular game as low as $40.

As for friends on Steam vs. Origin, you can't tell unless they add BF3 to Steam via adding the Origin process and renaming. The friends lists aren't/can't be integrated automatically.

I think PDW-R is the best, UMP-45 is also up there.
