No.  But let’s say for a minute the mount diameter was large enough.  What would that get you?  Image circle of current Z lenses are not large enough.  So you’d need all new lenses.

And what would be the IQ gain with small medium format?  I would say not enough.  Fuji skipped full frame and went to small medium format to get a large enough gain.  Nikon would need to do the same.  Skip small medium format ang large MF.
