What's the quality that gives some lenses (like Minolta G) a "3D" look?

Oh geez, you shouldn't have shown them our new destroyer.  When we get the money from cutting the subsides for votes we might be able to buy another flag for that one.

But that is a nice flag.  I stood right up and gave it a salute.

Of course the whole issue is DOF related, and sharp edges on the object 'in focus'.

The better the light is managed the more possible it is.  You can always put a ND filter on the lens to allow you to open it up more.  On a very bright sunny day DOF can be pretty deep with most lenses, thus the ND filter.

Circular logic there, without a polarizer.
