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

User skill. High resolution and micro-contrast helps, but most of it is a good head on top of the photographer's shoulders knowing how to compose a shot in more than two dimensions.

I must say, though, that while it can be an impressive technique when pulled out successfully, it is not mandatory for great photography---I've also seen many photographs that work precisely because they appear "flat", and invoking through their composition and subject arrangement a feeling close to classical painting.
