No, that'd be a medium format camera equipped with a handful of high-quality prime lenses, as results of upsampling are never as versatile as capturing a larger, more detailed image to begin with in terms of producing a final image.

Not quite.

Medium format cameras do one thing better - they have higher resolution. However, technology used for the medium format sensor is years behind what's used for FF (& smaller) sensors, this is why dynamic range is nothing to write home about, and noise is not good. Add that medium format cameras are several decades behind what is available in FF DSLR flavor, and that lens lineup is also lacking, and the result is the exact opposite of a versatile system.
