They were shot in aperture priority. I took auto ISO off from the Sony because it was setting it to 3200, but those pictures were as underexposed as the lower iso ones.

NEX-6 iso 3200

I think the nex was choosing too fast  shutter speeds. But i'm not experienced enough to judge that yet.

I will try out the manual mode like you suggested but try sticking to f4.5 and above on the fuji.

Do you have the exposure comensation set to -ve 1.7 or something? As there is no way that the camea would pick that exposure as the 18% grey with out any compensation unless you have spot metering onthe arm of the bear or something. Even then I wouldnt expect it to be as dark as this.
