The megapixels is the same, the compression will determine your file size

If you check the dimensions of the photo, they should all be the same at the max jpg size. The number of pixels is going to be the same. Since jpg is compressed, the compressed size will vary. So, dont think that you are missing megapixels in the image, you should not be.

If you worry at all about jpg quality, which you should, shoot raw, its the best image you are going to get from the camera. You can convert into jpg later.
