I think the D800 out resolves 4x5 unless you are shooting with very very fine grain film.

You're wrong. Any 4x5 film will out-resolve the D800.

It deff out resolved the 4x5 portra 400 in my tests. The tests show the d800's grain size at comparable print sizes is smaller.

If you're referring to the tests you linked to, I don't think you can conclude anything from them. Shoot the same subject with your D800 and 4x5 film - that's the only useful comparison.
