There have been a lot of people who comment that some lenses produce images that have a 3 dimensional look, or at least no "flat" looking.

It's just a cult belief, a hoax, a mass hallucination. There is no 3D look that you buy with a lens. People can't even agree on what that might be if it existed. If you want some kind of 3D look, you build it as you would go about building any photo with a specific goal in mind.

Correct. Proper composition is the key to a 3D look. No lens can do that.
