Currently I use the Lee Filter Holder 150 x 150 for the Nikon 14-24f/2.8 on my Canon Bodies, I imagine Canon are not going to be able to do a heap with that front element that Nikon weren't able to do, so I guess if/when Canon drop a 14-24 onto the Market, you'll need to look at after Market adaptors like the Lee 150 X 150 System, it works just fine on the nikon 14-24 but the system & filters are somewhat dedicated to just this Lens, so it becomes an expensive solve to the problem.

I also have the Canon TSE 17 which has a similar issue with the front element (Huge), and no one makes an adaptor, that I am aware of, for this lens, which is a Bummer, best fix I've seen to date is a Modification to a spare Lens Cover for the 17mm adapted & converted to take the 100 x 150 "Normal" Lee Filter set up, I've not tried it though, may give it a go as I'de like to use my Grads on this Lens, the 24 TSE isn't an issue, Lee have a step Ring @ 82mm that allows it fit the normal 100 x 150 Lee System to the 24 TSE & 24-70f/2.8 II.

The Link shows the mod for the 17TSE if anyone's interested.

The lens is filtrable, Lucroit and Hitech make the appropriate filter and holder system....

how likely is it that a EF 14-24mm can be used with screw on filters?

will it have a bulged frontelement that prevents the use of filters?

Based upon the prototype canon personally sent me, i can say with 100% certainty "MAYBE".  :P
