I'll be visiting family for Easter. Can someone tell me how it will work out if I try to take a shot of everyone gathered around the table ready to eat, with my new lens at 7mm and the camera much closer than normal to the table? Are the people going to look heavier than they are?

At 7mm, it doesn't take much to make the svelte look like Midwest mall crawlers.

Don't shoot friends or relatives at 7mm! Anyone at the edge of the frame will be nearly un recognizable. Keep it at 14mm if you don't want to be excommunicated… or whatever booted out of the family is called.
