Megabytes vs. Megapixels

D800 RAW images converted to JPG do not come out as 36mp. They vary depending on subject. The RAW images out of the camera of these shots ran around 43.4 -43.8 mp. And they're only that close to each other in size because the subject is so similar.

I'm sorry Bill but that makes no sense.  I believe you are confusing mega bytes with mega pixels.  Converting a 36 MP RAW file to JPEG does not lower the number of megapixels (MP).
