Re: also:

If you haven't already done so, find that camera shop again. Set at least the D50 and D80 on the counter, with similar lenses. If they have the D70s, throw that in there too.

Now, here's the fun part.

Pick up each camera, d50 then d70s then D80. Look through the viewfinder.. zoom in and out. Try and manually focus the lens (if possible).

The difference between the 50/70 viewfinders and the 80's viewfinder is nothing short of dramatic! Those elderly eyes will certainly appreciate the difference. I think your choice will be clear after that... all the other advantages of the D80 just make it even better.
