64G card remaining shot counts on D4s (only 2.2k)?

I replaced my old D3s with a new D4s recently. Right now I have two cards, one is the old Sandisk EXTREME PRO 90MB/s 64G (originally used on D3s), and the other is the new Sony S-series XQD 180MB/s 64G card.

Both 64G cards have about 60,000MB usable capacities.

I set the NEF RAW file setting to lossness compression with 12bit length on both cameras. The Sandisk 64G shows 3.5k remaining shot counts on my D3s, which is correct with average size 15MB up per RAW file.

But on D4s, this count became only 2.2k on both 64G cards, which is strange. The average size of D4s should be 18MB per RAW file I guess, so I expect the counts should be about 2.6k~2.8k.

Anybody know what's going on here?
