Exterior Paints

Just about finished prepping the exterior of my house for paint, it's a combination of wood siding and wood shingles that were all previously painted.
Does anyone have reccomendations for a quality paint to use as well as a quality primer? The house is on the marsh so it gets a lot of abuse from salt air. Have no problem spending a few extra bucks on paint if it will help to extend the life of the paint job.

Never had an issue with Benjamin Moore, its not cheap but worth it. I did my house (Hardie Plank Cement Siding) in 2007 and it looks great.

Duration by Sherwin Williams. Not cheap but really good. I used it for my trim down Cape. Looks great so far.
