How different lens focal lengths impact portrait subjects
In this animated gif you can clearly see how wide angle lenses (lower focal lengths) distort the face and telephoto lenses (higher focal lengths) compress foreground and background with minor facial distortion. 50-100mm is the sweet spot for facial distortion and background compression.

That said if the camera and subject were in the same location at each focal length the size and position of your subject would greatly change and distortion of the face would not be as apparent... but the distortion/compression would be apparent throughout the scene.

This isn't a function of the lens, it's a function of working distance.  You get pretty close when you say:   "if the camera and subject were in the same location at each focal length the [...] distortion of the face would not be as apparent."

In reality, if the camera and subject were at the same distance the distortion wouldn't be there at all, because it's not the lens casuing it, it's the distance between the subject and the camera.

DXO Mark just released it's sensor ratings for the Canon 1DX Mark II. Canon's flagship camera would appear to be giving Sony's A7R II a run for its money. Could this be a good omen for the upcoming Canon 5D Mark IV?
