 With a focal lenght of 10.5mm I'd say it is definitely the lens. 50mm is more or less standard for full frame cameras (as it is with shooting on film). I think that for those consumer grade SLR cameras this number drops to 35mm and for the mirrorless cameras it would something like 25mm. Either way, 10.5mm is pretty wide angle. Higher numbers get you an even less distorted image as is being used for portrait pictures (which is why the photographer shooting portraits typically shoots from so far away).

That said, I'm curious how much forks even flex under cornering. When I was riding 9mm qr forks with a 190mm rotor I could hear the brake rotor rub when cornering. But that's still a lot less deformation than it appears like in this picture.

 @jjhobbs: I wouldn't be suprised if that wheel is being g'd out. but the fork? I mean, a flexed fork will bind and not work, and his travel isn't sagged into at all.. sooooo maybe a little bit of A and a little bit of B?
