    Well first I have to say hello to everyone. Im new and need some info. First off I just got a brand new 1D MarkIII and was wondering wich lens would you consider the best.

    Had a 5D in the past, I mostly shoot car moving and stuff

    it really depends on you and your shooting habits... are the cars far away, is it usually low light. want a zoom or primes? so many things you have to decide...

    I'd recommend a 300mm L prime, f/4 or f/2.8, depending on what you can afford.

    And keep the 5D as a backup body, with some wide angle L zoom attached.

    This combo would be best for me for that sort of shooting. no Idea if it is the best for you ...
