Default 4 or 5 MP w/ 3x zoom & cropping vs 3 MP w long Zoom

I like having a long optical zoom 6x-10x, but also like the very compact cameras for portability.

Can I use a 4 or 5 MP with 3x optical and crop the picture and get a comparable zoomed image /size / quality as a 3MP with a 6x-10x zoom for a 8.5 x11 inch print?

Recommend the Olympus C4040 or the Olympus C5050. Both cameras have excellent optics with 3X zoom. Check prices at www.dealtime.com
