Though I believe we would all agree about the lower body, Steven Low's contention is that bodyweight exercises can be used to gain significant strength and mass on the upper body through gymnastic progressions. I believe he's written extensively on the topic on his web page. I still think barbells are better for it, but some of the gymnastic progressions would certainly require you to develop significant amounts of strength.
