Ted,

I owned the 24mm f2.8 D for a few years and recently sold it. Like you, I found that it was flare-prone even with the standard hood.

My "elegant" solution was usually my baseball cap or whatever else was handy. After a while I got tired of doing this and decided to sell the lens. Other than the flare problem, I found it extremely sharp and contrasty using film.
