I think the mouse wheel zooms in and out by default.

Well you could do it with your touch pad. .I think it's Control panel->mouse->device settings->settings->scrolling or something like that

Sounds like you are max zoom-in setting.

I'm not in game right now, so this is from memory:
Preferences, Keybindings, Camera
There, you can see what the default keys are for Zoom-in and Zoom-out (and, I think, max zoom in & out).

You can rebind if you like (I do). Or just remember those and then zoom out to your preferred distance. I also set the max distance slider (that's somewhere in the normal preference settings, not keybindings) further out to get the big picture. Good when fighting some giant beast, or just to see where everyone is, especially if you're a healer.
