Though I am hearing more people complain about Canon sensors falling behind... It's still not as if the difference is that huge.
IMHO, as long as you compare cameras of like capabilities (APS-C to APS-C, FF to FF, etc.), in the real world there's probably a nickels difference between them. With today's cameras, lenses and the capability of the photographer make the difference. I see images here that make me drool with envy of the talent. Again this Is just my opinion.

Why does everyone worry about test numbers from DXO? Maybe we should tell Leica owners they have the worst cameras since DXO rates them the worst FF tested. I don't know how they make such magical photos.

Agreed. And very few of us (certainly not me) are even using our cameras to their fullest potential.

Wanted to add to your post that the Nikon D5200 has a sensor that's also made by a different company... Toshiba. (NikonRumors; Chipworks page isn't working right now.)

And guess they were afraid of patent lawsuits against each other, because Sony and Aptina recently announced they were going to share all their sensor technology:

The big new looks like the SL1, as a true dSLR to compete with mirrorless in terms of size.
Yes and no but mostly no. A Panasonic G3 with 12-35 f/2.8 weighs 1 lb 9 oz, that's less than Canon's equivalent 24-70 f/2.8 by itself and only a little more than Canon's 24-70 f/4 or 24-105 f/4. I like what Canon has done with the camera but the good lenses will continue to be large and heavy. Even Canon's EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 (a good lens for the SL1) is well over a pound.

Funny enough, the next gen of Panasonic micro 4/3 is rumored to be larger than the current models.

I was just about to buy a T4i as a back up body. Glad I waited. Hopefully now with the release of the t5 the price of the T4i will be lower.
