Great job advertising iPhone camera to!
I just got my iPhone5 and I think in some respects produces better jpegs than my first digital 8MP Rebel.

Dang, was it THAT bad of a photo?
I actually shot it with my 5d3 and 100mm macro.
In my car using natural light. I thought it was a good photo :-(

It's a great lens.  Took some very sharp pics with the 7D.  I've got a 6D now, and once the weather is less blah, I hope to get many more (and really give the 6D AF a test)

WHAT?
You got a 5D3 BEFORE your first L lens? It's interesting how people choose bodies over lenses while everyone "theoretically" knows that lenses are more important.
You need to get some serious L's for that camera.  But this is what you'll do anyway because now your officially infected.  :P

I think 100mm macro makes sense to use it on APS-C :) I think it doesnt matter much what you buy first. Im also thinking if i should get an L lens before getting a FF body :P I can only buy one. So i can either start FF with 50mm 1.8 II or get some L (24mm 1.4 for example) and use it on my APS-C now already.

Soon you will be singing the Trainspotting song which also applies to L lenses:

My therapist said, not to see you no more
You're like a disease, without any cure
I am so obsessed, I'm becoming a bore
Oh, no.
And you think you're so pretty!

That was also my first L and I love it! Great choice! After I saw the IQ from that it made me realize why L lenses were so sought after! Now for my first L prime!!
