At some point the MOSFET approach will lose to diode if current is sufficiently high:

The drain-source resistance will cause the forward voltage drop to go up linearly. So picking a MOSFET with a small Rds would be one idea to reduce conduction losses. Checking the gate threshold voltage with which you must drive the MOSFET in order to get it turn on fully is another important thing.
