For example, the most recent enthusiast DSLRs for both Nikon and Pentax have their sensors made by Toshiba, but they are not the same.

No they don't - they have sensors made by Sony. The D5300 and D3300 have Sony sensors. I don't know what the Pentax has, but probably Sony. The D5200 and D7100 had Toshiba sensors and the D3200 had a Nikon sensor. Nikon seems to shop around as, we learn, does Olympus.
