Thank you. Maybe I'm stupid but why should I loose image quality when I use only part of the sensor?

I loose some resolution but otherwise there should be any penalty. Am I wrong?

Essentially it's just cropping the photo, and thus, like you say, reducing the available resolution. But it won't impact image quality in any other way.

Actually, you can turn it on its head to: you could criticize a FF camera for having to crop it's native aspect ratio to get to 4:3. There's nothing magical about 3:2.
