after setting up a scene with a JBL lighting environment
I changed from orthogonal to perspective view for rende-
Funnily I was not able to zoom in with perspective view
activated. Zooming slows down and finally comes com-
pletely to halt.
Switching back to orthogonal the camera jumps right into
the object. Changing back I see everithing from a distance.
Is this normal or is this an error. I can´t remember if this

This could be normal behavior, as you can only zoom in till the "focus point" - which is the same as the rotation center when orbiting using using space mouse or F4.
However, if you hold F4 and click somwhere inside the circle you can change the rotation center - and also the "focus point"
This is normal, albeit annoying, behavior, and torbjorn's explanation is spot on. If you can't zoom in as far as you would like, just reset the rotation center (as torbjorn described) so that it is further back along the zoom direction.
I get it at times and I think I've worked it out...
There's 2 issues at play:
1) you've zoomed into the rotational centre and thus it doesn't want to zoom any further. Press F4 to bring up the rotation disc and left-click further into your model, let go of F4 and you should now be able to keep zooming further.
2) it also has something to do with the amount of Perspective distortion/focal-length (mind-fart and can't think of the correct term atm). Use shift+ctrl+mouse-wheel to reduce the distortion and usually you can zoom in a little more (it seems to bring the further-away portions of your model towards the rotational centre, towards the camera and thus zooms in a little more at the expense of reducing the perspective look).
I hope that helps
with F4 and repositioning of the center point everithing
comes into view again. Thank you all for your support.
I might be playing with the other options too in a later stage.
