I do not like the new camera distance limitations. One thing that can help some is to use a viewport mod. I use CT_Viewport, the current version (pre-patch compatible) of which is available at ctmod.net, but isn't updated on curse quite yet.
If you set the viewport mod to limit the amount of display on the vertical axis, you will see correspondingly more on the horizontal axis, as it does not stretch the graphics. This gives you a marginally wider field of view, but it may help a bit.
A comparison of no viewport mod vs. viewport mod is shown in the shots below. Note that I use it to essentially cover up the part of my screen that I use for chat boxes/bars/mod displays that I don't want to see the game in anyway.
Above image is without viewport. Note the graphics between the chat box and omen window.
Below image is with viewport. Note the lack of graphics in the lower portion, and the slightly wider field-of-view left and right.
Image below just shows that you can keep going if you'd like.
