You don't get anywhere near the degree of optical magnification with a camera like the XZ-1 vs a good macro lens. Also, and this is sometimes crucial, the right sort of macro lens allows you to be further away from your subject.

Thank you for your comments.  I was looking at the Oly 60mm macro for $499 for my E-M5.  However, before spending the money, I'm going to try out my recently purchased XZ-1 first and see how I do.  If I really get into it, I may decide to get the lens....or not.
