Similar experience here, when light shines directly on front lens it 
produces flare to some degree. When the standard hood protects front element 
from direct light I did not noticed flare. I use hood on my 35/2.0 ASPH and 
no filter. Sometimes flare is obvious as is on your photos, sometimes it 
produces tiny strips. Even when hood protects lens from direct lightning and 
the surroundings emanates v.strong light (water, snow),  sometimes I noticed 
sort of effect, to lesser degree, like is on your 2nd photo.
I am just a shooter, and Iíve also noticed this lens does not fight flare
