All 9 of the T4i's sensors are cross type sensors. They are distributed across the viewfinder covering it pretty evenly. Of the D 5200's 39 focusing points, only 9 are cross type. They are the grouped in the center of the screen. Since cross type sensors are more accurate than non cross type, this may be a consideration when you compose your shot....and what camera to buy.
