The 14-35 f2 and the 35-100 f2 will do that. The 35-100 effect is even more pronounced than the 50 f2 because of the longer 100mm focal length.

Yes, I noted that further down but they aren't the sort of lenses many m4/3's users will own or be prepared to pay for.

In answer to the original poster's 3D look premise, Once again...the "3D look" is not about sensor size. Sensor size has a role, but obtaining a 3D look can be accomplished by a combination of relative distance from camera to subject (closer enhances separation of subject, fore ground and back round.), focal length of the lens, aperture used, angle of the light falling on the subject, and the texture and contour lines of the subject.

You can obtain a 3D effect with an IPhone.


Will I learn from life's lessons or will I lose my faith in the goodness life's promise had to offer?
