My guess is that image quality will be slightly better, but maybe you will not recognize it at all. This was the reson why I suggested camera with bigger sensor.

Right now, I take a lot of photos with my iPhoto 12 Pro Max, but only if I don't need to further than the 2.5x optical zoom.  If/when I need further reach, I reach for the SX40 or my SX260, both of which have much longer optical zoom.  So which yields better IQ--longer optical zoom but with smaller sensor or digital zoom with larger sensor?
