I use crop mode (on the A1) when I'm shooting something small, far away. It gives me a magnified view in the EVF, so I can see my subject better, and I'm going to be cropping more than APS-C size anyway, so the crop is just giving me a head-start with the benefit of a smaller file size.

Also, with the A1, the AF points are reconfigured in APS-C mode. The total number of points remains the same but they get smaller so, in principle, there might be an AF adavantage in situations where a smaller AF point would more easily isolate what you want to focus on.
