It has a wide (170-degree) view and a not-so-wide setting with 110-degree view.

 

Because it will go to 1080p  … and the lens is sharp and OIS good … you can zoom further in post.

 

Alternately, you could mount an extender of some sort  … likely you could adapt one of the 'telephoto' attachments they sell for iphones … but if you're shooting people 30-50 feet away I think you'll be fine using post production zoom .. .of course the newer one (A 500) with 4k 30p video would extend your post zooming capabilities significantly.
