Sony XAVC file size bug?

Hey everyone,

I recently bought a new A7M4 and was doing some testing on XAVC files sizes based on shooting 1080p at 16mbps 4:2:0 8 bit vs 50mbps 1080p 4:2:0/4:2:2 for 4 secs. I found it strange that all media was recording around the same file size give or take 100kbs. Having a look at h.264 levels with MediaInfo the 16mbps file came at (High Profile Level 4.0) while the 50mbps files were at (High Profile Level 4.1). I'm also finding it hard to believe that 4k files size is only double 1080p also. Is everyone getting this oddity with their Sony A7M4's, or is Sony crippling low files sizes using Level 4.0 for 16mbps and Level 4.1 for 50mbps 4:2:0 1080p? Cheers!
