You could have gotten a lot closer to them with that kind of a lens!
But nice shots anyway. You can start to see the CA come through...

Thanks for looking but no, you can't get closer than 30 meters--that's one of the downsides. Another is the CA (green/magenta fringing): it's not as bad as with other lenses I've had but it's there. I dampened down most of it but I'm not a pp whiz.
