I believe the numbers are just the actual number of pictures that can be taken until the buffer is full, not the number displayed in the bracket in the viewfinder.

I was looking taht rear LCD which counts off the number of frames taken in the upper right corner in image review.

Upon a side by side test, with the Sony 180MB/s XQD card, the same settings (100 iso, 1/1000s, 14-bit losslessly compressed raw, everything off) on each camera except 11 fps vs 10 fps, the D4s captured 86 images while the D4 captured 77 images. I consider it to be an improvement.

Interesting, for me with a Sony 168 MB/s XQD and the same target and settings on both cameras (ISO 800, aperture priority @ f2.8, everything else turned off) I had much lower numbers for the D4s as indicated above?  I was in Single Point (center) AF-C
