Ahem. The regulation as such is not bad and really, it has been known for years that it will be coming. It is not in any way as if Hasselblad or Fuji or Pentax or whoever else is using ROHS and required re-engineering as a claimed cause to discontinuation were informed recently that they will have to change. They knew it just as well two years ago as now.

ROHS was passed in 2002 - why were redesign efforts not started back then ?
