Overall ratings vs. Sharpness

Thank you again for the great work you do. 
In your overall ratings, you actually rate the D 5200 higher than the D7100 by one point; but as I read the lens comparisons, on lens after lens, the 7100 rates as much as 20% higher than the 5200.  Now comes the 5300 that ranks with the 7100, lower than the 5200,  but presumably will also have sharper images as does the 7100. So is the 5200 better with an overall higher rating? or the 5300/7100 with greater sharpness?

Thanks for your support, the dxomark score does not take into account sharpness and resolution. It evaluates sensor on a noise/color point of view.
Basically the D5300/D5200 and D7100 achieve the same score on the DxOMark sensor rating. (1 point of difference means only 1/15 of a Stop)
To have the whole story, you should maybe wait for the lens result for Nikon D5300 (which should be available very soon).
