It's not a zoom, it's just the focus.

I'm assuming you mean the window with the infinity symbol in it, that's the focus distance scale. It tells you how far away the lens is focusing. It also has two dots on the outside to tell you your depth of field at f/16. That is, how much of the image will be in focus.


Changing the focus does indeed change how far away you should be from the subject.
