Pana Macro 2.8/30mm

I bought the Olympus 60/2.8 Macro and am happy with it and intend to keep being happy with it no matter what other macro lenses I have. But I also have the Panasonic 30mm f2.8 OIS macro and if I could be happier with another macro lens then this is it. Not only is it a great little macro lens for the usual things but it has become my go-to portable copying machine and all things general purpose. Macro lenses can be useful for other things besides bees and flowers.

In film days, I used the Micro Nikkor 55mm as my standard lens and found it usable for about 80% of what I did. So I am thinking about getting the P 30mm. However, the 1,7/42,5 also has some close focus capability and might be the better for my 1,7/20.
