I can't see the 56 being much better than the 60 for overall sharpness. Faster? Duh. Snappier autofocus? Almost certainly. But the 60 is already very, very sharp.

The macro lens will certainly be better for close focus, and the 56mm will certainly be better for portraits and infinity focus. That's my bet.

They are very different lenses. Personally the difference in aperture of the 56mm is 2 stops so the relative price difference is in the 56mm lenses favor. Usually going up 1 stop about doubles the price of a lens (rough estimate, varies on lens complexity).
