The Fuji overstates their ISO with one stop compared to Sony NEX.

That's not true. I had Sony NEX 5R (and sold it soon after getting a Fuji) , and compared it with X-E1 in the same scene with same focal length, aperture and ISO values: Sony underexposes severely, so I had to dial +2/3 EV, and at the end I had only 1/4-1/3 stop difference in shutter speed with similarly exposed shot (Sony was faster). Sony overstates it's ISO by 1/3 stop too, according to DP review.

Several other people have written about their 5R's underexposing and yet I don't think it happens a lot. Mine doesn't.

Having said that, if a camera is pre-set to underexpose slightly, it will reduce the chance of blown highlights. Some makers specialize in techniques to increase dynamic range, also causing reduced blown highlights.
