I thought it was a bug, I heard a guy from Darthater talking about it and he said something like "bad that they fixed this."

You could have a look at the .ini file and see if you can find a key that has something to do with maxcameradistance.

Never had a problem with a looooong zoom in beta, I just went to the options and checked the 'unfix' the camera box. (ok maybe not unfix camera I can't remember it's exact name, but it was something like this.)

ok i will investigate these things further in hopes of not having an extremely narrow field of view

IIRC, I used a slider in the options that allowed me to zoom out farther than the default setting.

You can modify the max camera distance in options. I think they should have just set it farther by default though.
