After getting the XE-1 & 18-55 which lens next?

Given the recent reviews/tests of the 18-55 appearing recently on this forum, I am wondering which lens makes the most sense as a next lens in addition to the zoom.

Although the 35 get phenomenal raves, it appears as though the 18-55 is quite sharp wide open at 35, just a stop or two slower, so one loses some subject isolation, but still has good capabilities.

The 18's seem matches except for a stop.

It would seem the 60 makes the most sense.  The 18-55 is appearing soft wide open per recent comments/test and as such for portraits with good subject isolation, the 60 makes a lot of sense.  Also, the 60 gives me macro capability which the 18-55 does not have.

Thoughts?
