As you can tell, the 2 cameras have got different megapixel count and different sensor sizing. The P7000 having a larger sensor is going to make achieving shallow DOF easier and the Nikon S3500 will provide greater detail having an extra 10MP. Greater resolution will also let you crop pics much more aggressively. The older P7000 will be disadvantaged with regard to sensor innovation.
