Yes, I also agree that, generally, that comparison is not good.
However, unless he screwed up something in his test procedure, perhaps his 800L is a wonky copy, so his results are valid for his wonky copy of 800L.
I think he also had a wonky 200 f/1.8 a few years back, and we exchanged emails on that because I didn't feel that 200 1.8 should be so much inferior to 300 f/2.8 IS MkI in sharpness, and he was also very surprised by the results he was getting.
It's a difficult business he is in, and he should perhaps go back to those tests which seem "fishy", and repeat with a different lens, even if he has to borrow it. That's what PZone fellow often does.
