Rhetoric and right

what do you want him to do.. lie about his experiences?

Nope!

But why'd "NikonFan99" post what he did?  Why share those experiences?

There's a rhetorical purpose in his post: it *argues*, by testimony of sorts, that what other people would call a "problem" isn't actually that--or, that if it is, it's worth "working around."  I'm suggesting only that the argument isn't reasonable.

(I'd go further and suggest that a reasonable response to buying a bum camera would be to *not* buy another one and, again, have the same problem.  And I would make this argument, in part, to impeach the idea that "NikonFan99's" rhetoric is not reasonable.)

He's prepared otr clean his sensor when needed because he likes the images out of it;

(i.e., "it isn't really a problem, or, if it is, it's worth working around."  Rhetoric.)

he's not saying everyone should be the same as him.. is he?

He is.  Rhetoric exists to persuade.
