What does the '3D-effect' in Zeiss lenses mean?
Dec 7, 2011

In some reviews on NEX-related websites they mention the specific Zeiss lens related '3D' rendering of a scene (I am not referring to 3D technology etc. just the metaphor). I am trying to figure out what this really means in relation to contrast, resolution etc.

If I had to choose a lens that is '2D', I would perhaps choose the 16mm prime – if I interpret this 'lens-language' correctly. The 16mm delivers pleasing but somewhat 'flat' images. Or pick another lens.

Somebody has perhaps two comparison images that can proof this 3D aesthetics? Thanks.
