Like Meike Reichle I’m going to order a new passport without fingerprints before this stupid new law becomes reality/active.
What Meike forgot to mention: you maybe need a certificate of birth (Geburtsurkunde) when you order a new passport. When you’re ordering the new passport at your birth place, it’s likely that you don’t need such a certificate, but I moved in the meanwhile to another town and wanted to get a new passport last Thursday and was told from the people at the town hall that I need to have a certificate of birth.

Another interesting point to know: you can order your new passport anywhere in Germany, but when doing so somewhere else than where your main living is (Hauptwohnsitz), the costs will be doubled: instead of € 59.- you’ll need to pay 2x € 59.- = € 118.-.
