P2 Workflow efficiency ratios compared to tape.

I have had some discussion with Jeremy Garchow on the KiPro forum abou this topic. But I was wondering if anyone had done any studies or have any numbers as to how much more efficient P2 is in comparison to logging and capturing tape. I am looking for some hard numbers to use in my proposal to go to P2.
Would you say that it is 50% faster? twice as fast? I am looking for man hours reduced to do the same work. Our typical project would have 8 hour long tapes. so that is a little over 8 hours of "capture now" or "batch Capture" ( we build an FCP log while we shoot in the studio)
How much faster would it be to transfer that same footage on P2 captured in 1920 x 1080 AVC Intra 100?
How much quicker could I be editing that footage? With tape I couldn't start till at least 8-9 hours later.
