I have both the 5DM3 and 600EX Flashes.

You need either a Flash in the hot-shoe controlling the others.


The ST-E3-RT in the hot-shoe controlling the other Flashes.

Wireless (2.4GHz only works on the 600EX and the Transmitter)
They also do include backward support for using optical with the older flashes.

Bear in mind, that you can not control the old (Infrared) flashes with the ST-E3-RT, only with a 600EX/-RT in the hot-shoe. The ST-E3-RT do not have IR or AF-assist-light.
You need more 600EX-RT's to have both AF-assist and radio-control.
