Start with setting the camera to 0EV. For your purposes, even -0.5EV or -1EV may be desirable.

Also, check your metering mode. Try the three different modes on the same scene. Bright sky and dark mountains may not lead to the exposure you seek.

Turn DRO on, it will help a little too.

Then decide on JPG sharpness and brightness settings. You may like vivid, landscape or sunset mode for your style of pictures.

You should get identical, if not better pictures, with the Nex. A min of ISO 200 just means faster shutter speeds and/or smaller aperture than a min of ISO 100. The camera auto adjusts. But you have full DR.

One trick to play with is HDR bracketing. It will help compensating for low light and high light. The camera will store the properly exposed JPG, together with the high and low exposed blended shots. Viewing this may help you decide if you are working at the proper exposure levels.

Lastly, take a few shots on iAuto mode. What do they look like?
