To say amazing does not do your work justice.

Thanks a bunch for all the nice comments!

The setting I used was on manual for all images
Lens 50mm 1.2L
ISO 800
Shutter 1250/1600
Aperture f/1.2

Notes:
* Center (large not the precise point) single point only and I shoot vertically.
* I aim at the chests with the high contrast word prints.
* I shoot in RAW for WB adjustments as WB is unpredictable
* I do a bit of sharpening if necessary to make the images pop

f/1.2 DOF was not a problem for me, as the subjects are not exactly that close to you- incase you are wondering. And the AF is super accurate with the 5D3 (I get around 80% in-focus images after a lot of practice, and, most of the time, when the subject is out of focus, usually a user error occurred or the subject has moved too far from my previous focus plane).

Simply incredible. Thanks so much for sharing your info. I was just looking at your newest post. I've got to be honest, 1.2 floored me. I would've never thought you would be shooting wide open for the obvious reasons everyone else is thinking.
Well, you debunked that myth.
I was mad cause I had to shoot at 2.8 the other night instead of my usual 3.2 at my home arena.
I'll be bringing out the 135, 85, and 50 for the last home game this thursday to give it a try. .....maybe. !
FANTASTIC IMAGES!!! I can't stop looking at them!!
