You don't see the room in the bell from the 5D shot, because the angle of the shot is obviously different (I say "obvious" because the light pattern in the 5D shot of the bell is so completely different from the other light pattern that it has to be a different angle).

To me, it's not darkening the shot and losing the room. It's simply at a different enough angle that the room doesn't show up as part of the reflection in the bell.

Furthermore, the dark strip underneath the bell is obviously lighter in the 5D image and even shows some detail not visible in the other image. Therefore the 5D image is not darker.
