The magnetic critical properties of two-dimensional spin glasses are controversial.Using exact ground state determination, we extract the properties of clusters flipped when increasing continuously a uniform field. We show that these clusters have many holes but otherwise have statistical properties similar to those of zero-field droplets. A detailed analysis gives for the magnetization exponent delta approx 1.30 pm 0.02 using lattice sizes up to 80 imes 80 ; this is compatible with the droplet model prediction delta = 1.282 . The reason for previous disagreements stems from the need to analyze both singular and analytic contributions in the low field regime.
