This is probably due to the higher magnification the lens is capable... Just like all other lenses, the lens becomes 'shorter' when reaching it's closest focussing distance (just like a 200 mm Micro is only '200 mm' at telework)

Indeed. Might only be at shorter distances, i.e. 7ft in your example. What happens when you shoot a subject at a greater distance? Same issue?
