My current 77mm filters can be used on my RF70-200mm, EF24-105 and EF16-35mm/4. CPL/6 stop ND and 10 stop ND are screw in and my grads are 100mm wide on 77mm thread.
Moving from my EF16-35mm/4 to RF would mean new filters for >77mm thread. That will be expensive for me. 82mm for the RF15-35mm/2.8 and would be larger if it is 14-35mm.
Unlikely that a 14-35mm lense would accept a front filter thread ie bulbous and need a special setup like the Nikon 14-24mm or EF11-24mm.
I have my Samyang 14mm/2.8 if I need wider but it is mostly for astrolandscapes ie not using filters
I'm sure that a new RF wide angle zoom will be great but it would add another AUD1k minimum for the new filters.... Much more if 150mm grads would be needed.
I don't think that will necessarily be the case, as the Nikon Z 14-30mm F/4 accepts 82mm filters without any kind of special set-up. Mirrorless lens mounts make wide-angle lenses a lot more manageable to design, so 14mm is possible with filters.
For my own uses, I already have all of my filters on 82mm and use a 82mm adapter on my 100mm Lee square filters, due to the 24-70mm f/2.8L II needing them already.
