Macro? 30? 60? 0?

I'm not a huge fan of Macro, but every once in a while I feel like it could be fun. One of the things I "lost" when selling all my Canon gear and moving to m43 was my Macro lens.

Thanks to Black Friday, BH Puts the Olympus Macro lenses at great prices. 99$ for the 30mm. 299$ for the 60.

Now... paying 99$ for having a Macro lens is a no brainer for me, but the question is, isn't 30 (i.e. 60 FoV) waaaaay too short for good Macro? on my Canon crop my lens was 60mm (i.e. 96 FoV) and even that was a bit short...

Then again, the 60mm is obviously a spectacular Macro lens, but paying 299$ for a lens I rarely use is already not such a a "no brainer".

Thoughts?
