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 ???
...Micro-contrast and near focal plane OOF characteristics. You're not 3D blind.

So background separation from the subject is not the lens 3D-pop being referred 
This sample photo from a canyon 180mm macro has 3D-ness but not the pop.
Longer focal length lenses would then be more likely to create 3Dness.

As to "visible on the camera LCD" I question that.

Just quoting Mike:

My impression of microcontrast as it applies to the Zeiss C/Y 35-70 is contrast 
in the 20-30 pixel radius range     (at least when I played around with images 
on the 5DII) It is not a subtle phenomenon
As I said one can spot that the lens was used on the little LCD on the back of 
the cam.  (An aside--should LCE radius be changed in PS for very high 
megapickel cams?)  3D pop is very subjective but you know it when you see it.

The other lenses used with the same in cam processing don't measure up in the 
microcontrast category.
