Don't know about best, but you'll be well served by Ray Brown's 2 Volume
Commentary in the Anchor series. Rudolph Schnakenberg has a three volume
commentary in the Herder's Series that is also very good.

Gordon Fee's work is highly regarded but I'd look at V.P. Furnish's
commentary in the Anchor Series and Margaret Davies in the ICC. C.K.
Barrett's in the Black's series still holds up very well too.

> and Hebrews?

Some say Harold Attridge's commentary in the Hermenia Series, others
William Lane in the Word Series.

All B-Greeks may want to have a look at D.A. Carson's _New Testament
Commentary Survey_ 4th ed. Despite a suspicion that Carson 's
confessional stance may have something to do with his evaluations, it is
a fairly even handed evaluation of what's out there. It is, however, now
seven years old, so it will not have reviews of some of the more
recently published commentaries such as Aune's on Revelation (Word),
Marcus' on Mark (Anchor), Marshall's on the Pastorals (ICC), Malherbe on
1 & 2 Thesslonians (Anchor), Green's on Luke (Eerdmans) etc.
