Canon is set to release a controversial new EOS R system camera in January that is "going to annoy a lot of the fanboys", according to a new report.

Fanboys were annoyed that the original Canon EOS R didn't have two memory card slots, for example, and fanboys continue to be annoyed that the Canon EOS R5 is subject to recording limits when shooting in processor-heavy 4KHQ and 8K video modes.
