For convinience most cameras list an equivalent to 35mm (Full Frame) focal length. That Sony has a 24-200mm equivalent lens.

Look at those numbers on this photo

from the same spot our eyes see something in between 35 and 55mm, so 200mm is 4 times or so closer. A 10x binocular would give you just the barn. (the Pana FZ300 would give you that)
