My suggestion is buy a new one, it should be fine. Mine was, and I bought it new in December.
I think a lot of the ones exhibiting the severe dust problem were early production models - I also think that the camera is so good in every respect, the dust issue pales in comparison.
And welcome to Nikonians.
