it's not a true 3D photos
but Dankata photos with this lens makes that feeling
I think he use three levels of the sight in the DOF
the near out of focus
the middle which is the subject in focus
the far which are the backgrounds out of focus
like this one from his Flickr site

I think that "3D" means different things to different people. When I talk about "3D-ish" photos, it's less about something standing out from a background (or foreground) and more about giving an object (or objects) a sense of shape and depth. This is not my photo, so I won't embed it, but I think that this has a great sense of shape and dimensionality even though there's absolutely no OOF areas within the frame - http://peltarion.eu/im​g/zeiss/zeiss50-170.jpg (external link)

Lots of ways to capture a sense of dimension....its all about subject/background relationship

^^^

1) Somewhat (edit: your original #1 [kid in the toy car] was a 'not al all')
2) Not at all.
3) Somewhat.
4) Somewhat.

(my highly scientific scale: Very strong > strong > moderate > somewhat > not at all)

I don't find any of these to be strong examples; to me it has very little (and sometimes absolutely nothing) to do with the relationship between subject and background, but rather the rendering of the subject itself.

In any event, not to derail the subject further - have fun with the new lens, OP - it's a good one!

Nice photo set Mystik610
I like the subject isolation and DOF control in the first photo, the background is simply gone.
I really like the third (50mm) example as well for is isolation on the subject, while maintaining the location and the other person in the photo. Again very well done. Thin DOF and sharp subjects are why I like fast lenses.
Thank you for posting.

To the OP, enjoy your new lens, and lets see what you can do with it! Go take some pics. :)

So tempted by this lens, I love my old 135 f/2.8 GDR Pentagon think of replacing if I can find room in my bag (house rule, right now :( )

Is this 3D?

When viewing the pics by mystik610, to my untrained eye the second photo really looks 3D as the people almost look artificially added to the background. To me this is the best example yet of a 3D image. There are many posted in this thread that isolate the subject extremely well and make it stand out. Guess it is all subjective.

To me, "3D" is when the whole subject is in sharp focus, while the background is very obviously blurred. Plus good light, of course. That all makes the model "detach" from the background.

I just bought the 135L for the forth time or so... I am selling off my 300 f/2.8 II and want to replace the lens with 3 faster primes and pay off my car... So... 135L is first, 85L II will follow and finish with the 35L most likely!

But the 135L is one of my all time favorite lenses. I sell it because of my 70-200 II, but I keep coming back to use alongside the zoom. It just has a special rendering that I love. "Character" if you will.

You'll LOVE it on your 6D!!!!!!!

It's indeed amazing on 6D. I didn't use it often. But it didn't disappoint me every time I put it on my 6D. One time, inside room with dim light, I took an amazing portrait with ISO 6400, f2.0. It's razor sharp!
