Flare issues with ut 1004

I purchased two 24 - 105 mm L lenses from B & H. One for me and one for my wife.

I have noticed bad lens flare shooting in daylight and night photography @ 24 mm. Flare I would have never imagined...please read on so you don't make the same misstake!!!

When I bought the lenses in November Canon claimed they resolved the issues for production line UT 999 or less. Well the prodution number on my lenses are UT 1004 and they both function the same.

I always leave my hood cover on and this is not the issue.

Sunset shots with large flare.

I had taken some night shots that look like alien space ships taking off. "Cool" HELL NO! UFO's

I will be calling Canon in the morning regarding this issue.
