Re: Sensor SIZE vs "3D look", Yet again - sorry :)

It's very easy to achieve the "3D" look with ZD50 lens set at f2. You just have to use ND filter in daylight. I've seen a lot of folks adapting FF lenses to shoot wide open. Those FF size legacy lenses are not as sharp on m43 cameras at wide apertures as they exhibit some ghosting which leads to loss of sharpness. Not to mention nearly all of them suffer tremendous loss of contrast at wide apertures. Many old ones feature outdated, inferior coatings causing some flare which again leads to loss of sharpness and contrast. You really need extremly sharp (think Canon L lenses) and very high contrast large aperture lenses to achieve an effective 3d look. Also, those wide open 0.95 nokton pics are getting annoying. They are super soft, unnatural, blurry, distracting bokeh and pretty much bad taste rather than 3d.

P.S. the focus is on the girl's hand on this one.
