I'm no longer a PHP developer and a bit out of the loop with what's happening in the PHP world; so out of curiosity, how different are Zend and Laravel?

I have never used Zend so I don't think I could give you a fair comparison. Laravel simply tries to focus on developer happiness and ease of use. Note that this does not mean that it only offers simple functionality. Many of the features of Laravel (auto resolution IoC, async queues, event broadcasting) are unique among all other PHP frameworks and are fairly advanced.
