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.

If you intended to test the metering, and have found your NEX is consistently underexposing by more than a stop, then you've uncovered that your NEX is faulty.  Or that you've accidently left the NEX EV adjustment set to -1 or something.  If you are trying to test metering, it doesn't really matter what settings you use or even if you take a picture -- metering values should be 'universal', i.e. if the correct exposure is 400ISO f4.0 1/30 it doesn't matter what device you use to take the picture, that is the correct exposure.  Two different devices should both call for the same exposure in the same situation.
