It doesn't fit my flashes and radio trigger

Ah, gotcha...now that makes sense. Sony's Auto-Lock Shoe Adapter

ADP-AMA (or eBay equivalent) will also allow you to mount PocketWizards onto a77 and previous Sony models. I still have a bunch of these adapters which I use with NEX7. Happy I don't need those anymore with a99 and RX1.

By contrast, I would  now need adapters for my relatively new flashes (compared to all the old stuff I'm now supposed to be happy that I can finally use) and my very new Phottix TTL flash trigger. Now, you can go ahead and use Pocketwizards in dumb mode - because they don't consider Sony worth the while to support - and be happy because you don't need adapters. Those of us WHO can't afford to buy all new flashes and triggers are not pleased.

In addition, when we do get new flashes for an eventual new camera, those will have the new hotshoe, so they'll require an adapter to fit on our old receivers - or we'll have to buy a new set of those.

I can see why you're so positive about the new, old hothshoe. My next camera will be a Nikon ... all because of this unnecessary and ridiculous change of hotshoe.
