D800 RAW images converted to JPG do not come out as 36mp. They vary depending on subject. The RAW images out of the camera of these shots ran around 43.4 -43.8 mp. And they're only that close to each other in size because the subject is so similar.

I'm sorry Bill but that makes no sense. I believe you are confusing mega bytes with mega pixels. Converting a 36 MP RAW file to JPEG does not lower the number of megapixels (MP).

You're right Mike I was quoting MBs. Sorry for the confusion.
