Mike Gil....
I repeat that the perspective is totally dependent upon body position
relative to the subject.  This does not change with lens selection.

To get a different "look" or perspective, you must move your body relative
to the subject.

If you are limited in where you can stand ( feet glued to the floor), the 35
is the same as a 400 in terms of perspective.  What you do get is MORE IMAGE
area with the 35.....

What tends to happen is that when you change lenses, you are moving yourself
to fill the neg with  the  image... that movement of the body translates to
a different perspective which is what appeals to you.
