Sony DRO. The Sony is doing a lot of image manipulation behind the scene.  It is exposing for the highlights and boosting the shadows.  This is why they always seem to have the exposure right, it sort of balances everything in the frame.

With your XE1 you can probably turn on the extended dynamic range mode or shoot RAW and expose for the highlights, fixing the shadow area underexposure later and manually setting the white balance to cloudy or whatever is appropriate.

If the XE1 is anything like the XPro 1, low light focus is not its strong point.  The newer generation of cameras is better I believe.  My XA1 feels better than my XP1 did in this regard.
