Comparison between d50 and d80

Two days ago I got the d80. My intension was to replace my d50. Unfortunately I noticed very increased noise to the d80 images compared to d50. Look at the following images

d80

d50

these were both shot with iso 400, f4.5,1/8 sec with the 18-200vr at 18mm
The following are iso 800 f4.5,1/15 sec with the 18-200vr at 18mm

the next are iso 1600 f4.5,1/15 sec with the 18-200vr at 18mm

Look at this lack of detail in the d80 in high iso. The images look like a painting.

I also made the same comparison with iso200 and the results are again in favor of the d50.

I'm quite dissapointed as all claimed how good the d80 is dealing with noise.My observations show exactly the opposite.
Now I'm having second thoughts about keeping the d80.
