Among the lenses I've tried, in 50/1.4 category the winner is

It's an MC version of Z 50/1.4. Can't say if other calculations have this characteristic red flare.

I'll have to try that with one of my Zuiko 50/1.4's.

I think the most notable flare I can remember from one of my lenses was a Hexanon 40/1.8 that had a speck on the front element; most of the time it wasn't visible in the photos, but under the right conditions, it'd do a dandy flare ghost.

Pen-F, Hexanon 40/1.8
