That '3D look'........

Certain Zeiss lenses are purported to give a ‘3D look’ and I know there is a lot of debate about the reality of this phenomenon. It is explained by some as wide aperture subject isolation coupled with a high level of microcontrast. I have the fabled Zeiss 21mm Distagon and I can confirm that when used with a large-ish aperture or close to a subject, a definite f3D feel can be produced, (well, I can see it anyway).


Now I read that the DP2M can produce a ‘3D’ feel and I have to say, ‘Yes it certainly can’ and it tends to confirm my theory that this look is simply a combination of the right depth of field and the right degree of sharpness:
