I also find that I am more sensitive to dust than I used to be. A good dust collector will help, but a dust collector alone will not capture all the harmful fine dust. I use a dust collector AND an air filtration system. The two do a pretty good job.

However, fine sanding is operation that generates the most fine dust. A conventional dust collector is of limited value. If you are serious about controlling dust when sanding, nothing beats a festool sander with an attached dust extractor. Yes, they are expensive but nothing controls sanding dust better.
