To me, this is a deal breaker.
I was up in arms for the iron keel being a deal breaker and thought I'd show that the big name brands had gone that way, but I was wrong:

Oyster - lead
Nautor Swan - lead
Hallberg-Rassy - lead

Then to some other brands:

Jeanneau - iron
Beneteau - iron
Bavaria - iron
Hanse - iron
Island Packet - iron / lead
Catalina - lead
Hunter - iron
Tayana - iron
