Default Macro & other lens

I've been to the Focus on Imaging last Sunday (Birmingham Internnational in UK) and having tested the D60, 1D, 1Ds, I went for the D60! I also bought the 16-35 F2.8 lens. I need 2 more lens, but still can't make out my mind.

1) telephoto zoom lens for sports (Judo, wrestling)

Someone suggested the 70-200 F2.8L IS USM, but there's also the 35-350mm F3.5-5.6L USM but not a fast len like the 70-200 F2.8. How much difference is there between a F3.5 and a F2.8 lens when it comes to shooting sport events as mentioned above?

2) Macro lens for real macro shootings, minimum size 1:1. The MP-E65 does 5 times life size instead of 1:1.

Usage: botanical gardens etc


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not much luck on this post, especially for the MP-E65. Calumet (London) don't rent it out anymore, so I guess it's not a popular lens.
