Camera for LARGE art prints

Want to start working on some art print that I would like to enlarge to apx 4-5 feet on the long side.  Viewed from about 10 feet. Colour. Will be scanned and printed.

i have a 4x5 with great lenses but the production cost will be high at around $100 an image just to have a digital file.

What camera is going to give me the closest to 4x5 transparency without going to medium format digital (too pricey for now). 
I do not care about features. Manual exposure and focus and tripod. No sports, wildlife, street or family shooting and I don't need flash. 
Since I'm trying to keep the price down for now I'm considering a used Nikon d800 or 810 which I can pickup for around $1000-$1500

Nikon D80 Nikon D800
