2OP: did you use the kit lens on Sony ? I just got a Nex F3 with 18-55 and bought 50 1/8 separately, and in low light the performance of these two lenses is very visibly different. At the moment I have little love for 18-55. You should really try putting better glass on Nex and using the same exact settings to compare the two cameras. FWIW the Fuji may still be ahead but right now, in all due respect, this is no comparison at all.

With respect, the difference between the kit and the prime both at 50 and both at f8 is hardly what the OP is revealing in his underexposed shots.  I know that kit lens bashing is popular in every forum but my own experience is that the lens is capable, and offers a very good value for dollar -- there are more expensive options that are better, but the kit is nowhere near a poor performer.

My Flickr set for the kit includes a variety of shot types, and the kit holds up well in every instance:
