Buttercoat your filter from side which goes on the lens. Just stick your finger in some butter and then smear some grease on the filter (just a thin film). You can try to go in circles or from the inside out or even make some wavy structure. If you shoot with a tele you can clear the center again with some cloth dipped in alcohol. Enjoy.

What is the best lens to choose for crazy, out-of-this-world, over-the-top, almost obstructive flare! :)

I hear the FL 55 1.2 gets some nice flare?

I know i could fake it in PS, but i like to get the best i can in in camera...  any opinions/advice?

If you don't mind using a converter try the nikon 85 1.8G.. the flare is what you are looking for due to lack of nano coating...
