Sure, I haven't said nothing about D5200. 700D had an error in score estimation...

But the Nikon D5200 also has 9 cross-type sensors.

Sorry, Correct score weighted is 86 - 60 (no 53)

Canon EOS 700D has Cross type focus points = 9 (DPReview.com says: EOS 700D - 9 point AF system, all sensors cross type, central sensor F2.8 from 60D). Then, 700D has 22.5 points more. Correct Score D5200 - 700D = 86 - 75 (no 53)
