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)
I've tried to shoot rulers but my printer backfocusses.


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?
