Very respectable I think. I had heard some horror stories here in the US but they were just that apparently. A friend just told me he got his D4 back from a service in 2 weeks.

I would definitely not consider this a non-issue since it is tested and confirmed on several sites and can and does absolutely affect picture quality. It's just something a new camera shouldn't do. I would agree with you about the hysteria part though! It seems a lot of people new to DSLR's are expecting no dust ever on a sensor. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't that model is out yet!

I would hazard to guess you might see "Checked and cleaned"! Not worth the time IMO.
