Nope, you don't seem to understand the issue at hand at all. Compared to a 36mm x 24mm sensor, you are cropping every single picture you take. You're putting a lot of MP into that crop though.

Yes, you're giving up resolution (which also allows cropping on APS-C). But, that is only a part of the argument. The other being a choice between optical reach (using a 300mm lens versus cropping a 200mm lens to meet the FoV), and that you're determined to escape from.
