Anyway, what the original poster do not understand is that errors like Crommatic abberation, I probably misspelled that one so lets call it CA, and other lens errors are magnified when you crop a picture.

How could that be possible? CA does not get "magnified" if you crop the image, assuming you crop to the same size as the cropped sensor has. The CA is a product of the lens, not the sensor. My 70-300 has the same CA on the D300s as on the D800 with 3 times more pixels and 1.5 times larger sensor.
