Deciding on a macro: Oly 60mm or Lumix 30mm?

I'm trying to choose between these two lenses for my G85. I was going to spring for the Lumix 30mm until I read that macro lenses can be used for other things, such as sports photography and portraits, and that this lens lacks a focus limiter making it slower. The Olympus has this and also seems to benefit from being able to take shots from further away (without spooking your subject). Add in the weather sealing and it looks to be a clear winner to me at $100 more, but I'm open to hearing opinions. Also I already have a standard prime (leica 25mm) so that makes the 30mm seem slightly redundant.
