Nothing. You try to compare 2 different way to display RAW images :

1/ Preview (F3) : to speed up RAW image display, preview mode do not
use RAW image data but the jpeg embedded in RAW file. This version is
generally more small than original image. It's very fast.

2/ Edit (F4) : here the real raw image data are decoded. it's take a
while, but the image size are always fine.
