So that one your saying is a 856EW and I guess the question is are you Zoomed in or at at this view?

Next step up would be 1056EW and that goes from the 2mp that you have there to a 4MP with Motorized Zoom...

Or maybe if you want even more area go for the PTZ 4mp and that will give you even more zoom and area of view with ability to setup tours scans and other great things.. But yeah the camera you have there is about 80% better then my 956E WOW however right now I am using it as a sky cam and just as I was typing this I look up and watch 2 planes going head to head but I don't know this dark how high but they could have waved at each other as they passed by lol I should put on Youtube lol all you can see is 2 flashing dots headed at each other lol...
To answer your questions No the 856EW is not zoomed in. Thanks for the recommendation will have to look at it.

Here is another idea?! To be honest if your not looking for a Zoom camera maybe it is something you don't use and wouldn't use for the location your installing the camera

For a Large Leap in Tech to be honest I would go with IP4M-1046EW-AI it is a leap in price as well at just around 200 + or - 10 depending on where bought.. While it wouldn't give you total benefit until a AI NVR is bought but I would say that your Location there in my mind would be a Perfect location for that camera.. Something to think about..

@wickedstangs
The IP4M-1046EW-AI that @Revo2Maxx mentioned is the one likely to provide an improved night color image. It has a large 1/1.8" 4 MP sensor that should have very good low light capability. It also has two white light leds if used, instead of IR leds that would not help night color.
