But my main question is actually, is it easier to keep the iso low with the nex then with the 57 ?

for example can you take a shot with 5n at 800iso where you would need 1250 iso with the a57 ? (due to the fact that the a57 loses more light then the 5n)

No because the camera automatically compensates for the light loss so, at a comparable iso, the camera settings are the same. The difference is at higher iso the A57 will have marginally more noise than the NEX when viewed at 100%
