Wouldn't touch either of them to be honest.

I would be looking at an 18 -135mm or an 18 - 200mm like this one http://www.comeuro.net/webshop/product. ... stseller=Y

Don't buy that one though as your sensor size is a little too small on the 350d.

For Macro, go with a prime Macro. I believe the cannon 85mm with Marco is excellent. No zoom function, but if your macro objects are still you should be fine and will get better results. What are you looking to photograph?

I have the sigma lens which is not to bad in decent light and is cheap as chips
I use it for the odd football game and the like
I want a 70-200 2.8 nikon but as I dont use the long lens much I cant justify the price tag
Here's an example from the lens at 120mm at 200 iso F4
