What bugs me about that lens is that it has no 82mm filter thread, as my 16-35 2.8 and the TSE 24Lii both have that size and i only have 82mm filters..
Would the 16-35 f/4 hood fit when a 77->82mm step up ring is used?
No, it won't fit. Just get a step-up ring as you mentioned and buy another 82mm Canon lens cap. Problem solved!
FYI, on the topic of step-up rings... I purchased a Sensei 77-105mm aluminum step-up ring for less than $10 or $20, and my CPL was absolutely ridiculously aggravating to get off. There was definitely some binding going on. After that experience, I picked up a 77mm B+W XS-Pro CPL, along with a Heliopan 72-77mm step-up ring for my 135L. The build and quality of the Helipoan piece was amazing. It's brass construction which is top notch and screws on and off with amazing quality. To me it's absolutely worth the extra cost. That extra time and aggravation would be something to tolerate when you're in the field and on the go. Fussing about trying to get it loose will lead to a slip, oops, drop, smash, shatter. Eff that! My 105mm CPL is now strictly used with my Lee FK.
