opinion on 100L macro

Just need some opinion guys. I want to get a lens which can get me started with macro and also shooting sharp portrait. I heard a lot of great things about the 100L but just not sure if it's any better for portrait compared to say a 85 1.8 @2.8 that i own? i believe the 85 @ 2.8 should be reasonably sharp and not much difference compared to the 100L?

Since I am just starting macro, is it more sensible for me to get the 100 macro non-L? How much diff is there?

Thanks.
