No. It is to prove that the sensor is better per unit of area than
DSLR sensors, because it has a higher pixel density, which is just a
fact, that some people seem to have problems dealing with.

But if you take a crop from the APS sensor, to make it so low
resolution, its obviously not going to have enough res to make up a
decent image.

That's part of the point! I am not giving the big pixels a handicap; that's the way they ARE . They are blunt, and unresolving. How many of them there are in the full image is totally irrelevant to the issue of pixel density.

You know the numbers, so what res is the APS image??

Had you showed it on the same sized sensor, with various levels of
mp's, and compared, that might make sense.

That would make sense, TOO. However, it does not exist, so that is why it must be done this way.
