There is.

* M-x magit-find-file asks for a revision and a file name, and opens
what you ask for.

* In a buffer visiting a file in work tree, you can invoke M-x
magit-blob-previous and it will open a new buffer with the last
committed revision of the same file. Repeating M-x magit-blob-previous
(or pressing p) from that buffer opens the same file as of the
previous commit where it was modified. M-x magit-blob-next (or n)
travels in the other direction.

* In a buffer showing a diff, you can press RET on any source code
line and it will take you to that file at the relevant revision. (But
not in a diff to the working tree.)
