Does anyone know yet if the D7200 has a magnesium alloy chassis and a Sony Sensor or is it still the Toshiba? I have read on a couple sites that the frame is magnesium alloy where I don't think that the D7100 was.

Mostly magnesium alloy chassis.
I don't know about the sensor.

"The D7200 Sensor is based on a Sony sensor as opposed to the D7100's Toshiba"

To me it looks like a pretty solid camera.

It certainly looks like a better bang for the buck than the D7100 that had auto focus issues for some owners.

I still haven't seen anything that's definitive that it's a Sony sensor...I've seen reviews claim it is, and then later backtrack on those claims.

I am quite sure it is a Sony sensor. Dpreview believes it is too.

IIRC, the d7200 body has metal (magnesium?) chassis on the top and back, but not on the lens mount.

I don't believe that it has a Sony sensor. Several folks, that I trust, believe that it's a tweaked Toshiba sensor. Bill Claff's PDR chart, found here, shows that the d7100 and d7200 sensor perform almost identical up to ISO 6400. Beyond 6400, the d7200 sensor is just a touch better.

This chart also shows the "ideal" DX sensor performance. These 2 Toshiba sensors aren't far from that ideal.

If the d7200 sensor were a Sony, it's not likely that they'd have identical performance, IMO.

DxO reporting probably a Sony Sensor, too...

<<
Given the same 24.2Mp resolution without an Optical Low Pass Filter, it appears that Nikon has opted to build the D7200 around the Sony-made 24.2Mp CMOS sensor currently sitting in its DX-format D3300 and D5500 entry-level DSLRs.

DxOMark just pulled a KR; a review without actually reviewing the product.
