Portra 800 does very well pushed. The characteristic curves for 1600 and 3200 push are in the data sheet.

Yeah I don't think you'll match the ISO 6400 performance of the 5DII or D700 etc, but given the curve published for Portra 800 in a 2 stop push, it is pretty promising.
Porta 800 should push better than 400. Portra 400 however is simply the best versatile/all rounder.

Wow, great shots!! I'm inspired myself to go and shoot more stuff on film :D
Awesome! Thanks for the comments! I'll take a serious look at that Portra 800. I have to go to Pro Photo anyway, so i'll pick up a couple rolls and see what happens. I'll shoot one roll half at 400, half at 800 and process normal, than i'll push the other one to 1600 and see what happens :)
