Sigma 17-70mm DC Macro HSM (Contemporary)

Hello!
I am new to the forum and I was wondering if there is anyone who knows why the Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM (Contemporary) have lower rating than previous versions of the In-Depth Review, when it gets better criticism in the text?
Has the grading scale changed?
I can announce that I recently purchased a Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM with Pentax mount, so it is still possible to buy but made ​​to order.
Regards
Brera

Yes, we've added some new criteria. The C version did score higher, though (8.6 vs 8.4).

Thanks for the reply!
Okay, now I understand.
Should not Sigma 8-16 F4,5-5,6 DC HSM moved back to the current lenses?
