Why are G5 DNG files so huge?

Just starting to use a Panasonic G5. Adobe's DNG converter transforms the native RW2 file of 19 Mb into a DNG file of 49 Mb (without the original raw file being embedded). On the other hand, it converts a 21 Mb native SRW raw file from my Samsung EX1 into a 12 Mb DNG. Very strange. Anyone have an explanation? Thanks.
