    Dude, why don't you contact somebody at Foma, who would be the only entity to know the answer to your question?

    Why? because each time I wrote to them, I never got any answer...

    They are not very... communicative

    The Foma statements makes clear that there will be changes, as they talk about replacement elements for the manufacture of this film.
    Whether these changes will be detectable is a different issue.

    Foma is testing a new emulsion. They told me not to expect the films before next year. I have the film only 4x in 5x7" and 2x in 8x10" now.

    Freestlye doesn't have any EDU.Ultra 200 either, and the last box of EDU.Ultra 100 I bought had a hole in one of the sheets' emulsion.
    f/22 and be there.

    As you told me I asked Dana Hojna from Foma. No answer, as usual. But Hartumth Schroeder from Maco/Rollei confirmed the AgX and Slavomir statements :"They have a problem to substitute one important ingredient of the formula. This is the daily business in all photo production plants.
    Because the raw material producers are killing important products.Because of the shrinking demand."

    Well this is the answer from Zuzana Manova:
    "Dear Mr. Aurelien LE DUC,
    thank you for your e-mail as well as interest in our product.

    I am sorry, but the information was right. Since we were forced to change
    supplier of the raw material we have to eliminate some manufacture
    complication first. Anyway, we hope to continue with production of FOMAPAN
    200 as soon as possible. When the films are available again we will
    immediately supply our official distributor in France - BARYFILM, where you
    will be able to get the films.

    Till the time please give us your patience and stay with us. Thank you in
    advance.

    Best regards,
    Zuzana

    Zuzana Manova (Mrs.)"

    This is how the actual situation is. It's already a problem for several months and therefore Fomapan Creative 200 film is running low in stocks for all distributors.

    Best regards,

    Robert
