A7C RAW Uncompressed compared to A6500 RAW

I and just trying to understand difference between A7C RAW compressed RAW and comparing to A6500 RAW.

The A7C compressed RAW file is 24,939 KB

The A6500 RAW is 24928 KB

They are pretty close in size but what does that mean to me (if anything).

A7C RAW > JPG from Uncompressed RAW:

A6500 RAW > JPG:

I note that when I mount my favorite APS-C lens (16-55mm f/2.8 G) the camera automatically switches to APS-C and if shooting uncompressed RAW the file size is 21,686 KB.  My main question is if using my APS-C lens on the A7C with uncompressed RAW will the image quality be near that of the FF lens on the A7C in compressed RAW (file sizes are close,).

I enjoy content, simplicity and light weight: A6000, A6300, A6500 w/Sony + Zeiss + G Glass
