The G15's macro ability is one of  three reasons why I went for it in the end after agonising over it vs the Nikon Coolpix 7700. Like you I am keen on insect macro and the clincher for me is that the G15 can focus reasonably close when zoomed in. You don't have to go to 1cm which most butterflies find highly irritating!  The auto focus is also very quick which helps.
