Sounds like high microcontrast characteristic of many Zeiss lenses.  Many use the C/Y 
35-70 f3.4 manual lens on Sonnie for the high microcontrast and "3D rendering."

The microcontrast can be mimicked in post but the "3D rendering" seems next to 
impossible at least for me.   Something to do with the transition zone/bokeh  rendering 
it seems.
Using the C/Y zoom one can not any LCE in post or it looks overcooked. I can 
tell on the smidgy cam LCD that the lens was used.  Mine developed some play in 
the barrel and not one shop wanted to service it in the US.
They said they were used and abused by pros and then sold and they are a bear 
to disassemble.  I sent it to the Netherlands on advice from FM people who one 
it.  On my best adapter though it is a wee smidge off infinity focus now--drat. 
 Seems I need a shorter adapter now.

Long ago, in a Galaxy far away, I thought 2x zooms were pretty cool. The Nikkor 43-86 was pretty poor optically, but the Oly 35-70/4 is good.

Now, with today's sensors, esp. things like the A7R series, might just  as well get a 35/2 or f2.8 prime you like, sneaker zoom and/or crop.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
