Most anything you want to do with a FF camera you can do with any other camera.

Not true at all.

Look, a camera basically comes down to a sensor and a hole (aperture).  You can control the diameter (aperture) and location (focal length) of the hole.  That's about it.

This is a little out of date, but the message is simple - anywhere inside each "envelope" is where you can choose to shoot.  This is "hole" (aperture) size and location (field of view).  One envelope is much, much larger than the other, and that's why full-frame is so much more versatile than smaller formats.
