Some specific concers about the A65 are how is the video auto-focus compared to the t4i with their new STM lens?

No comparison. The AF of the A65 in video is much better and faster than the t4i. Since video is a priority it might be best to avoid the A55 since the sensor tends to overheat, especially in hot weather. I've had my A55 overheat in as little as 4 min 30 sec in 85 deg weather. My A65 has never overheated in weather hotter than that.

Also, I read that the A65 isn't very good in low light, is that still the case or did some firmware updates fix this?

I own an A65 and A55. The A65 is good in low light and don't listen to anybody who says differently. In addition to the A65 consider the A57.
