Here i mean for example, say if it is 100 meters, it would be the same magnification as viewed by naked eye by moving 100 meters closer to the subject.

I hope that I have conveyed by question correctly!

A 300mm lens provides 6x magnification compared to a 50mm lens.

On a standard film or "full frame" camera a 50mm lens gives similar perspective to the human eye, but at a much reduced field of view (narrower field of view).
