I am no expert. There is noise in the images (ISO 5000.)But using that line of argument, my a900 Jpegs shot at ISO 6400 shout also be larger that the RAW file and that is not the case. Mind you, I am not complaining. It is just that I never saw a jpeg larger than its Raw file nor a Jpeg so large.

The jepgs from your A900 use a lot more compression than the highest quality jpegs coming out of RAW converters.

Also, your A900 had larger RAW files when not using the cRAW option.
