Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the point of a macro is to capture small objects at great magnifications. To this end, some cameras (like your Sony) will zoom in to their maximum length, in order to magnify smaller objects. You should try zooming in manually, without the tele-macro feature. Small chip cameras will have a difficult time pulling off shallow DOF shots (especially indoors), so I'm not sure you'll be happy with the results regardless.
