What lens would you get next?

I currently have a 7D and a 350D with:
18-55IS (This primarily stays on the 350D for my wife's use)

I plan to upgrade and add the following lenses to my kit in the mid term future and can spend $700 max for a new lens for the holiday season now.

1. Normal Zoom (Sigma 17-50 (or Tamron)).
2. Normal Prime (28/1.8 or 30/1.4)
3. Macro lens (60/2.8 or 60/2.0)
4. Tele Prime ( 85/1.8 or 100/2)
5. Tele Zoom (Tamron 70-300) (sell the 55-250 in this case)

Longer term I will probably upgrade to the 17-55 and one of the 70-200L's

Without getting into discussions on which specific lens, which category lens would you buy next if you have the same kit as me and why. I have my preferences now, but I would like to hear your thoughts.
