Can you rotate or otherwise change your viewpoint in Diablo 3?

I like looking at my character details, or the world around me, and was surprised that I couldn't zoom in with the mouse wheel.

Is there a way to zoom in on my character?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't think this is a duplicate of the linked question. The linked question is asking if you can rotate your viewport because something is in the way, and this one is asking about zooming in. I actually asked it because I discovered the [Z] key yesterday, and think there are many people who would find this answer useful. – Rachel May 22 '12 at 16:22
"Or otherwise change". The question is inclusive, and one of the two answers includes the zooming question. It's a dupe. – Raven Dreamer May 22 '12 at 16:26

To zoom in, you can hit the Z button

There is also an option in your settings under Gameplay that will automatically zoom in on your character when you open the inventory screen.

I knew about the inventory option; I didn't know about the hotkey. Too bad there's no other options beyond the preset zoom, though. – Frank May 22 '12 at 16:12
