In the explanation they write "Even though they cost more, we've considered the Canon EOS R6 and Panasonic DC-S5 in this group because their specs and performance are consistent with their ~$2000 peers."

If the specs and performance of higher priced camera are consistent with peers at lower price point it doesn't make sense to pick the higher priced model. If there're two similar performing products why'd anyone recommend or pick the more expensive?

They said

The Canon EOS R6 is the most expensive camera in its class but also perhaps the most well-rounded, making it worth spending more than $2000. Like all cameras in this class it offers excellent image quality, and it has an AF system that’s both powerful and easy-to-use.

Honestly what sense does it make to set a hard limit for a review like this? If the best camera was $1 over the limit should they ignore it?

You can argue that $500 is too far over the limit but this isn't the Olympic with weight classes.
