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

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. Most notable are the older Minolta G lenses, an the CZ lenses.

Does this have to do more with the coatings on the lens or something else?

No... it has to do much more with your own imagination, and with the "3D hype" that some people spread around photography forums.

Use of short DOF also produces a more dynamic image, but there seems to be something more to it.
