I much say that every image I have seen with the SD or DP that was claimed to be "3-D" appeared so because it (maybe accidentally) the photographer used some of the well established methods of creating the illusion of depth.

I partly agree. Many (most) seem to have very little clue what they mean when they are talking about the Foveon 3D look. They just show an image that, as you say, uses one trick or another that makes it look 3D.

But - only partly.

Some few images have a kind of well defined sharpness that helps giving the feel of 3D. OOF parts have just the right fuzziness and all parts in focus are very sharp.

However, that is one of the oldest tricks in the book to produce the illusion of depth.

For Bayer you have a variable fuzziness. It is sharp here and fuzzy there. Things in focus might be fuzzy and things out of focus may be sharp. This makes it hard to see that 3D look that depends on sharpness.

I've actually seen as many examples of Bayer - 3D as I have with Foveon 3D.  A good photographer will bring it out.
