[R] lapply and paste

I have a list of suffixes I want to turn into file names with extensions.

suff<- c("C1", "C2", "C3")
paste("filename_", suff[[1]], ".ext", sep="")
[1] "filename_C1.ext"

How do I use lapply() on that call to paste()?
What's the right way to do this:

filenames <-  lapply(suff, paste, ...)


Can I have lapply() reorder the arguments to FUN?
