I see 2 main reasons:

1. Sun light is missing in NEX shot (as other guys mentioned)

2. NEX has MUCH bigger sensor size than FZ28 and because of that on same aperture you have much shallower depth of field and because of that most of your image is out of focus. I would suggest to try for such landscape shots aperture of f/8 or maybe even smaller. Yes - bigger sensor is not always better

I think this is 50% of your answer and this:

Well, first of all, why are you pushing EV by 1 stop? That washes out your entire scene and blows out the sky. People generally want to run negative EVs for sunsets.

Would I be correct in guessing that you are only working with OOC JPEGs? OOC JPEGs are entirely tunable for the characteristics you want. Have you tried a Creative Style, and the options for vibrancy within?

One thing that can be said for sure: it has nothing to with the (non)availability of ISO100. Even with ISO100, the FZ28 is only capable of 10.1 EVs of DR and 17.9 bits of color depth, while even with "only" ISO200, the F3 has 12.3 EVs of DR, and 22.7 bits of color depth. The range of info that the F3 can capture is much, much more than the FZ28. The problem lies somewhere else.

Is the other 50%.

You need to use higher apertures to get the same Depth of Field for your new camera.

You need to tweak the JPG settings and WB settings to achieve similar results as your other camera.

Also try to increase noise reduction as it will create a "milky" look or reduce sharpening.

And if you really do not like the results, even after tweaking camera settings or even post processing RAWs, then you can always go back to your old camera.

Good luck!
