Sometimes, it's difficult to visualise the contrast in sensor measurements purely by seeing technical specs. The visual below should offer you a more clear sense of the sensor sizing in the S80 and TX200V.

As you have seen, both cameras feature the identical sensor size but not the same resolution. You can expect to see the Sony TX200V to produce more detail due to its extra 4MP. Greater resolution will allow you to crop images way more aggressively. The older S80 will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor tech.
