The leaked hood designation for the 14-35/4 is an EW-83 hood. That means the bayonet mount is 83mm in diameter. The filter must be several millimeters smaller, i.e., a 77mm filter thread.I think that it is wishful thinking that the RF14-35mm will have a 82mm thread. The next step is 95mm filters which are a lot more expensive than 82mm
There no physical possibility of a 95mm front thread with an EW-83 filter, the hood couldn’t fit. Nor is it at all likely that an 83mm hood mount would have a 1mm smaller diameter filter thread.
If the EW-83 leak is correct, the lens will either take only rear filters (unlikely) or have a 77mm thread (most probable).
