I know of 21 people who've purchased a D5000, and every one of their cameras are on the recall list. That said, I don't know of any one of them that have had the power problem. Three have had lenses that work perfectly on other cameras but are finicky on a D5000, including myself.
I'm glad that Nikon has faced up to the problem early, and I hope that they have fixed the problem going forward.
I like my D5000, but knowing that there was at least one major defect in the camera, as shipped new, makes me very glad I bought an extended warranty.
As an early buyer, I paid full retail for my camera; and I expect it to be worth what I paid. So far the camera has its pros and cons. We'll see how it fares over time.
