T8 is 25mm and T5's are 16mm diameter. The pins are also a different configuration at the ends so won't fit in the end caps of another size.

T6's will fit though and are apparently an improvement on T8's
The wattage is the same but the actual amount of light produced is higher so in effect you're upping the light levels. They are also thinner so there is much less re-strike.
