The image is not only darker, it lacks detail relative to X100 image.

But as I said earlier, this is more likely due to the difference in lenses used.

Perhaps the lens used, but in truth the NEX photos look to suffer from motion blur or missed focus on top of being underexposed -- there is no doubt they are poor photos, I'm just not certain why they are as poor as they are. 

Having read the entire post, I guess that the most likely scenario was that the OP had accidentally left his exposure compensation on the Sony at -2, or thereabouts.

We had already suggested that and the OP said they have it set to 0. Either they are looking at the wrong setting or there is an issue with there particular camera thats causing it to under expose. I guess a good test is to get them to up the EV to +1 or higher and try a similar shot to see what the result is. If it looks the same then we can narrow it down to either of those problems.
