I already have the 100 2.8L, but had planned on buying the 60mm macro for the closer focusing distance - easier to light well.

I wouldn't expect much difference to your lighting from the closer distance. I went from using a 60mm to a 90mm and it didn't get any harder to light. With some tweaks my lighting is better now with the 90mm then it ever was with the 60mm. The longer distance is also useful in a lot of situations. With the 60mm I had a lot more trouble with the diffuser hitting branches or spider webs because I was too close.
