My eyes got tired, mostly with shots with other lenses. Am I 3D blind, like 
tone deaf?

Thank you. It's just some form of Birch tree that has the paper peeling.

And a really lovely photo!

When I refer to a particular 3D look that the Olympus F2 lenses have,
I think this picture illustrates what I'm thinking. It's as though the
subject (tree) is separate from the rest of the picture. We can say
that it's all about the bokeh, narrow DoF, etc., but there is
something else going on that makes this image look like the tree is
actually sitting in front of the picture.

I don't THINK this is what Mike is referring to. He refers to a difference that is immediately visible on the camera LCD; something microcontrast-ish, accutance-ish, shape of edge contrast transition-ish.

In fact, the discussions of 3D on FMiranda seem to freely mix photos that are wonderful examples of background blurring/bokeh with those that may have the arcane magic to which Mike refers, and especially those taken with that paragon of 3D, the C/Y 35-70.

So Mike, got a couple of ideal specs for getting the effect, subject, FL, focal distance, background distance, aperture, and ???

Three Eye Blind Moose

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