I think the point of the crop mode is that it gives you a faster frame rate and deeper buffer, with no other changes to the camera.

Also, the 24 MP does mean that noise is less noticeable at high ISOs when printed or viewed on a normal size screen, as the noise tends to average out from several nearby pixels.
