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.

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.

Weird - my D4s maxes out at ~60 images with a Sony 168MB/s XQD card and those settings.  Hard to believe the card difference would make that much difference?  i tried a 2 button reset, but that made no difference.  I contacted Nikon USA to inquire about this and they are looking into it - curious to see what they come back with...
