  1. Hi. First of all let me state that I am totally new to photography and cameras, so please forgive the very basic (and ignorant) question. I am in the process of taking several online courses on my camera (X-T4) as well as photography in general. There is one thing, however, that is really driving me crazy - I purchased a used X-T4 with an XF 16-80mm lens. When I use the lens and set the focal length to anything other than 80mm, the image appears further away that it actually is. When I set it to 80mm the image appears to be the actual distance from me. I was thinking that the 80mm would allow me to zoom in on the image (make it appear closer than I physically am to the subject). If this is correct, is there a setting on the camera I need to set? As mentioned, I realize this is a basic question - my apologies. I am in the process of learning all I can but this one question is really bothering me. Thanks.
