Star Trek 2's 3D

I was excited to hear that the next Star Trek film would be shot in 3D, until I heard, via an interview with J.J. Abrams by MTV, that it will in fact be shot in 2D and converted:
We're shooting on film, 2-D, and then we'll do a good high-end conversion like the 'Harry Potter' movie and all that. Luckily, with our release date now we have the months needed to do it right because if you rush it, it never looks good.
Oh well, I'll look forward to real 3D cinema from The Hobbit, and enjoy Star Trek in its native two dimensions. There's some better news though, Abrams is keen on IMAXing it:
We were talking about [shooting in IMAX] and I would love to do it. IMAX is my favorite format; I'm a huge fan.
