Thanks for the ideas, guys. Sorry for the late response; it's difficult to find the time to post.
certainly not suggesting disassembly -- but make sure there's no dust on the outside surface of the lens on either its outside or camera inside, is what I meant. A small speck can cause such a flare and it is usually on the front element.
