Dusted Turbo???

I have been looking through this forum for a while now but this is my first post. I read some posts about dusting of the turbo, and was concerned about mine, so I took a look and snapped some pics. The impeller spins real easy and there is no noticeable play in the bearing. The blades look a little weathered on the edges and I was wondering if this is a sign of dusting, and something I should be worried about, or does this look normal? The truck only has 119,000 miles on it. I attached a couple pictures of the impeller. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The intake was stock to about 110,000 miles, then I put an AFE stage 2 on it. The intake tubes look really clean also, except for that oil residue in the turbo.

Yeah, I can't see any damage in the pics. Actual condition looks better than mine. I got a few nicks. (From the ________ that put the K&N on it before I bought it). I don't know about the new filter, I know the stock one sucks, Heard AFE is pretty good.
