Apart from some focusing difference, processing ISO3200 (D700) vs ISO200 is also likely to soften the former image.

Also mind that even with the same physical depth of field, quality of defocused area (bokehliciousness) won't be equal and lens specific additions may affect reception - here you have mostly chromatic abberation on wide open Pana, but it still pronounces wire baskets, giving impression of better defined (less blurred) edge.
