Wired lav mic for use with 5DMKIII/Zoom/Tascam

Hi all,

I'm looking for some advice on buying a wired lav mic for use with my 5D3.

To begin with, I want to be able to plug it straight into the camera. Later it's likely that I will want to plug it into a Zoom or Tascam external recorder to both improve my audio quality and enable me to essentially use my wired lav wirelessly (by placing the external recorder somewhere on my subject).

The wired lav will need a 3.5mm cable/jack to plug into my 5D3, but I'm aware that XLR cables are better in terms of audio. The Zoom H4n accepts both XLR and 3.5mm inputs, but the Tascam DR-40 only accepts XLR.

Are there any wired lavs that I'll be able to use with 3.5mm cables just now but with XLR cables later?

Any advice or tips appreciated.
