 DWG To PDF.pc5 file size

We are seriously thinking about using ZWCAD instead of AutoCAD. That's why I donwloaded the trail version and are working with it right now.
It looks very promising but today I noticed something that's very disturbing for me.
We use the pdf plot option a lot, all of our drawings are being saved as a pdf for further use in our cocmpany.
When I plot using the DWG To PDF.pc5 file I get a pdf with a size of 12.473kB.
If I open the same drawing in AutCAD and make a plot using the DWG To PDF.pc3 file I get a pdf with a size of 95kB!!

And with thousands of PDF's a year we would need a bigger server to store all our drawings.

Does anybody know if there's a way to change some settings that would keep my PDF's smaller?
I already tried to change the resolution from 500dpi to 300dpi but I still got a pdf of 12.115kB
