D800 vs MF Film, not a standard question

I know there are numerous discussions as to which is better, film or digital and there is never an agreement; no matter how high the pixel count goes.

This thread is NOT about if d800 is better than medium format film.

My question is very simple:

I have d800, what should i expect if i try the MF or LF film photography?

For d800 i have to be allot more careful than i did with d90 to get pictures as good as camera can deliver; i suspect with MF/LF film my hassle will be even bigger. BUT, what do i have to gain in terms of DOF, color depth and overall clarity of the image later scanned to computer once i learn to use MF/LF film vs D800?

I am not interested in which one is better. I am not buying one vs the other. I already have D800. I am trying to decide if the gains from MF/LF film are big enough to go through the hassle of learning to shoot them.

Thanks ahead
