What is the best codec to use when importing video into Premiere?

I have recently aquired Premiere cs6 and want to use the best possible format to edit with. I am going to use footage that I film with a DSLR (5D mark III) so I know the codec will be H.264. My question is: Is H.264 the best codec to use? Or, is there a better codec that Premiere likes to use?

 

 

Thanks!
