DPR likes novelty and the scores are on moving scales. Since video AF has improved a lot since the 600D was released, the score would only go up if the 650D's AF in video/LV was at least up there with the latest ones (all in the ML sector or SLT). Applies to most aspects reviewed.

D5100 was reviewed a long time ago, they don't change scores as the scales move.

Not a totally defensible methodology, lots of inconsistencies there actually, but that's what they always say when people complain ;). For example, the AF in the NEX series is poor, compared to any system, but they like them and they get consistently very high marks from DPR, go figure.
